Welcome to the BGA and our website. The Association exists to promote understanding and to forge links between Britain and Germany. We have a history going back more than 50 years and today the BGA continues to play a vital role in forging relationships between our two countries.
We are currently building our membership and attract support from those involved in business, politics and the arts. I hope you will participate in some of our many activities and if you are not already a member, consider joining the BGA.
