Bilateral trade between EFTA and Chile has developed positively since the entry into force of the FTA in 2004. Last year, the EFTA States exported goods to Chile worth USD 287 million, while importing goods worth USD 162 million.
During the Joint Committee meeting, the parties reviewed recent developments in their extensive networks of preferential trade agreements. They discussed possible future steps to update the FTA in relation to industrial and agricultural products, customs matters, services, investment, intellectual property and government procurement.
The meeting was chaired by Mr Erik Andreas Underland, Chief Negotiator, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Norway, on behalf of EFTA, while Mr Rodrigo Contreras, Director of Economic Bilateral Relations in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, headed the Chilean delegation.
