Regional Tourism Fair Inaugurated in Chile

SANTIAGO – Chile’s Minister of Economy inaugurated on Tuesday the XI Latin American convention and events tourism fair, known as Fiexpo, which is being attended by representatives from 17 countries.

“Tourism is a clean industry, it is an attractive industry and an enjoyable industry. Supporting tourism in Chile is a good decision, as it provides our country with many possibilities,” Jose Ramon Valente told reporters.

The event will include meetings and workshops focused on boosting tourism in the region, as well as a tasting of local products from the countries being represented.

Chile’s undersecretary of tourism, Monica Zalaquett, who also attended the inauguration, told EFE that this year’s Fiexpo has been a “complete success” as the number of traders and buyers “has increased considerably compared to last year.”

“Fiexpo represents an opportunity for Latin America as a whole to boost and professionalize business tourism,” Zalaquett said.

An important goal of this year’s Fiexpo has been to promote Latin America as region to hold international events, a goal that has already borne fruit, as the number of invited buyers increased 25 percent compared to 2017, according to organizers.
