Reiterates Commitment to Free Trade

Foreign Affairs Minister Heraldo Muñoz has said that Chile will continue to promote trade liberalization initiatives across the globe because these strategies have created jobs at home and generated new opportunities for Chilean exports. The country will continue to pursue trade arrangements with a number of Asia-Pacific countries. Chile will also host a meeting of Asia-Pacific foreign affairs and trade ministers in mid-March that will include TPP signatories as well as China, Colombia, and South Korea.
