Foreign Minister Westerwelle is to speak at the 64th Latin America Day in Hamburg on Tuesday, 5 November.
Run by the Lateinamerika Verein e.V. and the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, this year’s conference is focused on the Pacific Alliance, as a newly founded economic area linking Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. The discussions will examine what advantages the new alliance holds for trade and investment and how German companies can benefit from that development and from the Pacific Alliance.
Colombia’s Foreign Minister María Ángela Holguín Cuéllar, Chilean Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno Charme and Mexico’s Economics Minister Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal will all be in Hamburg for Latin America Day.
Foreign Minister Westerwelle will hold bilateral talks with his Colombian and Chilean counterparts on the fringes of the conference. Their conversations will centre around further intensifying economic exchange and political cooperation, particularly within the United Nations.
