Alderney, 3 August 2023: “ALDERNEY IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS” is the campaign spearheaded by the Alderney Chamber of Commerce and aimed at attracting new business ventures, professionals and entrepreneurs to the island.
To set the scene and identify business opportunities in Alderney, Chamber is currently undertaking a survey encouraging its members and Alderney residents to identify the type of new businesses which would benefit the island’s economy by complementing rather than competing with, existing business operations. The results of this survey will be made public and will also be submitted to the States of Alderney Economic Development Committee.
To help new business ventures off the ground and to simplify the process of setting up their operations, Chamber has gone a step further by producing a practical guide “GUIDE TO SETTING UP A BUSINESS IN ALDERNEY”, which is now published on their website www.alderneychamber.com
