2023: A PIVOTAL MOMENT TO CELEBRATE 200 YEARS OF US-CHILE RELATIONS - The US-Chile partnership has long been taken for granted. Having just celebrated 200 years of bilateral relations, strengthening the alliance with Chile is an important opportunity for the United States to reinforce its regional presence and partnerships. A clear action plan for US-Chile ties was on the agenda on March 30 when we convened Ambassador Bernadette Meehan, United States Ambassador to Chile, and Ambassador Juan Gabriel Valdés, Ambassador of Chile to the United States. The central focus: how they expect or hope the alliance will evolve in the coming years.
This discussion coincided with the Washington DC visit of a nine-member Chilean delegation – composed of six parliamentarians representing six individual parties – organized in partnership with the Atlantic Council.
We are proud to have organized this event in alliance with the Embassy of the United States in Chile, the Embassy of Chile in the United States, AmCham Chile, and Universidad Andrés Bello.
