Governments of China, Chile Sign 10 Cooperation Agreements

SANTIAGO – Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and the prime minister of the People’s Republic of China, Li Keqiang, signed on Monday in Santiago 10 cooperation agreements in the fields of trade, finance, science and the economy.

The prime minister of the Asian nation, whose visit to Chile marks the two countries’ 45 years of diplomatic relations, met with Bachelet at La Moneda Palace.

“The 10 agreements we signed today are part of a total of 18 instruments of cooperation in different areas, both in the public and private sectors, and will be tools for working together for the development of both our countries,” Bachelet told reporters after the meeting.

In that context, the head of state said she welcomed China’s participation “in works of infrastructure” in the South American nation.

After a meeting of the Chinese and Chilean delegations, with the participation of high officials of the various ministries, came the ceremony for signing the accords, notable among which was the expansion of the already existing Free Trade Agreement and the elimination of double taxation.

“We hope that in financial matters, Chile can help promote the cooperation in industry and investments between China and all Latin America,” Li Keqiang said.

According to the Chinese prime minister, such bilateral cooperation will not only favor both countries, but will also favor “all Asian-Pacific countries.”

Keqiang also spoke of a closer relationship in matters of investment and expressed his wish that more Chinese tourists will be able to visit Chile.
