Chile aims to seal updated EU trade deal in April 2021

Chile and the European Union could seal a deal on a modernised free-trade accord by April 2021, according to Chile’s trade minister, giving Chile greater access to the world’s biggest trading bloc. The EU and Chile signed a deal on political and economic cooperation in 2002 but decided it needed updating to take into account issues including climate change, education policy and trade. A broader deal with the EU could drive economic development in Chile by attracting investments.
