France and Chile Agree to Expand Bilateral Cooperation

PARIS – French President François Hollande and his Chilean counterpart, Michelle Bachelet, met on Thursday in Paris and agreed to expand bilateral cooperation.

Hollande said in a press conference that Chile was an example of democracy, stability and economic success, and he praised the Bachelet administration’s economic, educational and health reforms.

The French leader also praised Bachelet’s commitment to achieving gender equality, saying she was one of the most important “defenders of this cause, which is also ours.”

Bachelet’s visit to Paris coincides with the celebration of Latin American and Caribbean Week, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, or OECD, annual meeting.

This year’s OECD meeting is being chaired by Chile and was opened by Bachelet on Wednesday.

Hollande said bilateral cooperation in different sectors, such as energy, defense and infrastructure, should continue, and he expressed interest in working with the South American country on cultural and scientific exchanges, as well as in the fight against climate change.

Bachelet urged France to participate as an observer in the Pacific Alliance, which Chile will preside over starting on July 1, and she invited Hollande to visit the country, “hopefully, as soon as possible.”
