Chile’s New President to Visit Brazil

BRASILIA – Chilean President Sebastian Piñera, who took office last month, will visit Brasilia on April 27 to meet with counterpart Michel Temer, the respective foreign ministers said on Wednesday.

“It will be a meeting addressing very specific matters,” including initiatives to boost economic and commercial relations between the countries, Chile’s Roberto Ampuero said alongside Brazilian opposite number Aloysio Nunes.

The foreign ministers said that Piñera and Temer will sign an investment and service agreement, as well as another one regarding government procurement aiming to take advantage of the “huge potential” that the countries’ bilateral relations entail.

“This will be my first bilateral visit, as well as President Piñera’s,” said Ampuero. “With this, Chile wants to send a very clear message about Brazil’s importance.”

“(Chile) is one of our main partners, with a trade flow that last year reached $8.5 billion,” said Nunes, adding that Chilean investments in Brazil amount to $30 billion.

The two ministers also reiterated their countries’ interest in moving forward with the Bi-Oceanic Corridor, a highway connecting Porto Munrinho – in Brazil’s Mato Grosso do Sul state – with the Chilean north via Paraguay and Argentina.

Nunes and Ampuero also insisted that both Brazil and Chile are committed to welcoming refugees fleeing Venezuela’s current political, social and economic crisis.
