The Argentina and Chile presidents have given on Monday in Buenos Aires a new step in their bilateral relations with the announcement of two major infrastructure projects, and their commitment to expedite the resolution of outstanding issues.
Michelle Bachelet and Cristina Fernandez showed their good tune on and agreed on their intention to accelerate the momentum on bilateral issues.
“The relationship with Argentina is a priority for our country, is a sister nation and we must reinvigorate the agenda we committed years ago,” stated Bachelet, who chose Argentina as the first state visit of her second term.
Both presidents have underlined their commitment to double connections with two projects contained in the Treaty of Maipu, the most ambitious agreement signed between the two countries, which will require international financing.
“It’s key for us to improve connectivity” to “give an immense back to cost and competitiveness,” insisted Fernández.
