Prime Minister Trudeau and President Boric recognized the strong friendship and ties between their countries. The two leaders reiterated their commitment to continue working together on shared priorities, including promoting democracy and human rights, increasing trade, creating economic growth that benefits everyone, and protecting environment and oceans.
Prime Minister Trudeau has signaled Canada’s support for Chile’s ratification of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), to ensure that the benefits of trade are more widely shared.
