  The Alliance was described by the Boston Business Journal as "One of the more interesting international initiatives to emerge in this region.

Boston Business Journal
September 27, 1996

  “In the new economy, success is about knowing the people who can help you get the information you need to do the best job you can: so I'm glad to see business organizations from so many countries here, making the connections that will strengthen Massachusetts' place in the global market.”

Argeo Paul Celluci
Governor of Massachusetts

About the Alliance

In February 1996, The British American Business Council of New England Inc. (BABCNE), hosted the first International Networking evening in Boston, which was attended by over 500 participants from 24 International Organizations in the New England region. Following the success of this event a second event, at which member associations exhibited, was held in October attended by over 700 participants.

This momentum continued with the formation of the Global Business Alliance of New England Inc. (GBANE) Urszula Wojciechowska, Executive Director of BABCNE, spearheaded the initiative and was elected president in 1997.

The Alliance is a volunteer network under which the Officers of the participating associations meet regularly for the mutual benefit of their memberships. All associations representatives play an active role in the governance and growth of the Alliance.
