Welcoming the delegation, the President said that India and Chile are vibrant democracies. We have been having regular interactions between our parliamentarians. These have played an important role in strengthening our bilateral ties.
The President was happy to note that Chile has signed the agreement to join the International Solar Alliance. He stated that over the past decade or so, Chile has taken the lead to push for the global sustainability agenda. Joining of the Alliance by Chile will strengthen our collective effort towards addressing climate change.

We are hopeful that the Expanded India-Chile Preferential Trade Agreement will give a boost to our bilateral trade. The Indian growth story and Chilean expertise must benefit from each other.
