Foreign Affairs Minister Teodoro Ribera participated in a video conference with the Foreign Affairs Ministers from China and Latin American and Caribbean countries to encourage greater cooperation against the Covid-19 pandemic.

During the meeting, the minister reiterated the importance of strengthening multilateral relationships and international cooperation to achieve collective and coordinated action, particularly at this critical moment marked by the global crisis created by the spread of the coronavirus.

“We believe that a commitment from all countries to support an open, non-discriminatory trade system based on transparent rules is especially important and we are calling on every country to abstain from introducing measures that restrict trade and could pose unnecessary obstacles to achieving this,” stated Minister Ribera.

“For Chile and our region, guaranteeing trade flows is central to the swift and effective recovery of our economy and trade that make it possible to boost our economic and social development,” he added.
