President Dilma Rousseff will visit Santiago de Chile on February 26 and 27, at the invitation of her Chilean counterpart, Michelle Bachelet.
The meeting will represent an opportunity to promote the intensification of bilateral relations and reaffirm the strategic nature of the Brazil-Chile partnership. The Presidents will examine issues such as investment flows, trade, regional integration, infrastructure, science and technology, health and culture.
Chile is Brazil's second largest trade partner in Latin America and trade exchange between the two countries reached US$ 7,389 billion in 2015. Brazil, on its turn, is the main destination of Chilean investments in the world, with stock reaching about 26 billion dollars.
Recently, the two countries signed a Cooperation and Investment Facilitation Agreement (CIFA), which will further boost bilateral economic and trade relations.
At the regional level, Brazil and Chile work together to promote the rapprochement between the Pacific Alliance and MERCOSUR.
