Join the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development, for an in-market Canada Trade Mission that will focus on opportunities in the clean technology sector in Chile.
Canada and Chile enjoy a strong bilateral and commercial relationship with 81 years of diplomatic relations. This year, 2022, marks the 25th anniversary of the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA) and its parallel agreements on the environment and labour cooperation coming into force, which have created significant benefits and opportunities for Canadian companies.
Canadian companies have preferential access to the Chilean market through the CCFTA and greater exposure in the country thanks to our substantial investment footprint. Bilateral merchandise trade has nearly quadrupled since the CCFTA came into force in 1997 and surpassed Can$3 billion for the first time in 2021. That year, Canada exported more than $1.2 billion in merchandise to Chile, making it Canada’s second-largest trading partner in South and Central America.
Demand for clean technology solutions and related services is growing rapidly as the country transitions to a low-carbon economy to fight climate change.
