ASEAN-6 nations do not require Visas for Chileans

ASEAN offers an emerging and diverse market, which together totals more than 650 million inhabitants, surpassing the population of Latin America, North America or Europe. It has a young and growing population with an expansive and urbanizing middle class.

ASEAN is for Chile a dynamic region, with consumers, labor, manufacturing, resources, and knowledge. Today is the time to trade and invest.

TRADE AGREEMENTS

Chile has signed trade agreements with 6 ASEAN countries: Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam and is making progress to sign a trade agreement the Philippines.

COMPLEMENTARY REGIONS

Several of the ASEAN countries seek to attract foreign companies and have strong incentives for investment. Both Southeast Asia and Latin America are complementary regions in terms of needs and resources, and Chile through its Trade Agreements, Free Trade Zones and its socio-economic stability, is an ideal bridge for ASEAN companies to enter Latin American markets.

POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP

Since 1962 Chile has had diplomatic relations with Southeast Asia. On July 24, 2016, Chile adhered to ASEAN's 'Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation', becoming the first Spanish-speaking country to sign such an agreement, strengthening relations and opening the way for new opportunities.
