Chile Deepens Ties with Asian Allies at the World Economic Forum in Hanoi

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam – Chile’s Foreign Minister Roberto Ampuero arrived in Hanoi on Tuesday to strengthen ties with Asian allies at the World Economic Forum, being held in the Vietnamese capital.

Ampuero met his counterparts from Vietnam and South Korea, Pham Binh Minh and Kang Kyung-wha, respectively, as well the founder of the World Economic Forum, German professor, Klaus Schwab at the forum, which this year is focused on entrepreneurship and the fourth industrial revolution.

Ampuero will also speak on Wednesday, along with the executive director of Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Secretariat, Alan Bollard, in a session titled “Trade and Tribulations – APEC’s Agenda in an Uncertain World.”

He is also expected to attend another two conferences that would discuss the priorities of the ASEAN economies in the age of the fourth industrial revolution.

He is due to leave Wednesday night for China and Japan.

Over 1,000 participants from 43 countries are taking part in the forum, including ASEAN heads of state and government, that will wrap up on Thursday.

The event had kicked off Tuesday with a controversy as Vietnamese authorities refused entry to Amnesty International’s senior director of global operations, Minar Pimple.

This followed the deportation on Monday of International Federation for Human Rights’ secretary general Debbie Stothard.

The WEF is a nonprofit based in Cologny, Switzerland, which in addition to its annual meeting in Davos, every year holds a dozen regional meetings in which the main economic challenges of the region each area are discussed.
