Speech by High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini at the European Parliament plenary debate on the situation in Chile

Over the past month, we have seen quite a dramatic sequence of events in Chile. The country has been shaken by a wave of protests and violent incidences.

The government declared curfews and a state of emergency. It deployed troops to the streets for the first time since Chile returned to democracy 30 years ago. Both the curfews and the state of emergency were lifted, but protests - mostly peaceful - continued throughout the country. On October 25 they culminated in the biggest demonstration in Chile's history, with over one million people marching to request profound social and economic changes. The mobilisation continues up to date, and it has broad support across all sectors of the society.

EU-Chile Association Agreement

The EU and Chile concluded an Association Agreement in 2002, which included a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement that entered into force in February 2003.

The EU-Chile Free Trade Agreement is broad and comprehensive and covers all the areas of EU-Chile trade relations.

The trade pillar of the Agreement includes a comprehensive FTA pillar that has led to a significant increase in trade in goods and services between the EU and Chile.

An Association Committee and an Association Parliamentary Committee were created within the framework of the EU-Chile Association Agreement.

The EU and Chile are currently examining the possibility to modernize the existing FTA pillar, so as to ensure that it addresses all relevant aspects of the trade and investment relationship between the EU and Chile.
