Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan spoke of the strength of the UK-Chile relationship, our historical ties and common values. Chile Day's objective include strengthening ties between the City of London and representatives from Chilean capital markets

 Minister of State for the Americas, the Rt Hon Sir Alan Duncan MP, opened the Chile Day event on Thursday with a speech that highlighted the strong UK-Chile relationship.

Chile Day is an event that promotes the Chilean financial market to a UK audience. It aims to strengthen ties between the representatives of Chilean capital markets and the City of London, and to showcase Chile as an investment destination and platform for funds across Latin America.

Sir Alan said:

“I am delighted to be taking part in another successful Chile Day in London. The UK and Chile are linked by close historical ties and common values. We share a strong belief in the importance of free trade and globalisation, and the UK is an active observer at meetings of the Pacific Alliance of which Chile is a founding member.

“Chile is a valued international partner, and we work together on a range of global challenges, including issues such as women’s and LGBT rights, education and peace-keeping. Each year, Chile Day offers an opportunity for us to strengthen and deepen our relationship with Chile not just in trade, but in other areas such as science, innovation and good governance.” (FCO)

    Chile's current relationship with the UK and the world in general has resulted in there being about 100 times more chilenos than argentos in the Falklands. Something to think about, when assessing the outcomes and benefits of foreign policy.
