The Global Business Access Council (GBAC) is a select group of professionals charged with creating partnerships in international commerce. Council members represent a cross section of industries focusing on attracting and creating international business opportunities for members of the Chamber. The mission of the GBAC is to assist businesses in their efforts to expand globally, work to promote, encourage and generate relationships through strategic introductions, and reinforce the value of the Chamber membership. In this way, the GBAC facilitates the creation of quality jobs for each and every resident of Miami-Dade County. Securing the City of Miami Beach as an international gateway.
The success of our mission to Beijing and Shanghai in 2006-2007 resulted in the launch of this global business access network. The goal is to enhance our international relations through business, education and cultural exchange.
In October 2013, Chamber Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, Ana Cecilia Velasco, and members from the Miami Beach community traveled to the Golf Coast of China to continue the mission of enhancing our international relations. The Miami Beach delegation visited four cities in nine days including Suzhou, Hangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing. They visited major landmarks like the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The trip fully emerged the delegation into the Chinese culture. If you are interested in taking the trip to China, contact the Chamber at 305.674.1300.
