Negotiations on the modernisation of the EU-Chile Association Agreement
European Parliament recommendation of 13 June 2018 to the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission / High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy on the negotiations on the modernisation of the EU-Chile Association Agreement (2018/2018(INI))

Modernisation of the trade pillar of the EU-Chile Association Agreement (2017)

The European Parliament adopted by 488 votes to 67, with 83 abstentions, a recommendation from the European Parliament to the Council, the Commission and the European External Action Service on the negotiations on the modernisation of the trade pillar of the EU-Chile Association Agreement.

The current association agreement, concluded in 2002, has been greatly beneficial to both parties since it entered into force in 2003, having doubled trade in goods and contributed to increasing trade in services and investment.

Parliament called on the EU and Chile to conclude a modern and ambitious trade agreement. This agreement should include a number of areas for fostering shared growth, equal opportunities, decent jobs and sustainable development, including the respect and promotion of labour and environmental standards and animal welfare and gender equality for the benefit of the citizens on both sides.
