EU Nations Urged to Work with Latin America’s Pacific Alliance

PUERTO VARAS, Chile – European Union member-states who are observers to the Pacific Alliance should “work with commitment” with the bloc comprising Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru to move forward in the educational realm, a European Union diplomat said on Wednesday.

“Leaders are needed in Europe” and, for that, “we have to continue moving forward together,” said the EU ambassador to Chile, Rafael Cochao, at the Ministerial Meeting with the Observer States ahead of the Pacific Alliance Summit, set to begin Friday in Puerto Varas.

During a panel discussion entitled “Education as the main axis in human development,” Hungary, which has been an observer to the Alliance since 2015, offered a “higher education project” to the four Latin American nations comprising the bloc.

The Latin American bloc at present has 49 observer nations, which on Wednesday held their third ministerial meeting.

The eight nations participating in the discussion – Germany, Hungary, Canada, Finland, the United Kingdom, Greece, The Netherlands and Switzerland – expressed agreement with what Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Muñoz said about the importance of education “in expanding economic progress and development.”
