Chile Pacific Foundation
Since its founding in 1994, the Chile Pacific Foundation (Fundación Chilena del Pacífico) has played an important role in advocating for Chile's free trade projection towards Asia Pacific markets. The Foundation has been proactive in promoting a broad array of initiatives that aim to foster Chile's economic and overall integration with Pacific economies.
Located in Chile's capital of Santiago, the Foundation, which also holds the Chilean secretariat for the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) and the Pacific Economic Cooperation Council (PECC), works in close collaboration with the public sector through a number of government agencies, most notably Chile's Undersecretary of International Economic Affairs (Subrei).
The Foundation is a private-public institution that encourages cross-cutting dialogue in Chile with the purpose of developing free trade oriented policies for the Pacific region. The Foundation continues to develop Chile's opinion leaders' understanding of the Pacific and its potential for trade and economic growth.
