State Secretary Matušić officially visits Chile
Officials discussed prospects of advancing cooperation, notably in economy and investment, as well as in culture, science and innovation. They exchanged views on the current global topics and multilateral cooperation. The large Croatian community in Chile was highlighted as a bridge connecting the two countries and offering potential for additional development of relations and cooperation. The officials signed a memorandum of understanding and cooperation in tourism.
Matušić also held talks with Vice-President of the Chamber of Deputies Daniella Cicardini, Foreign Policy Committee led by Tomás de Rementería, and Interparliamentary Croatia-Chile Friendship Group, during which good cooperation and friendly relations between the two countries were underscored.
In addition, the state secretary met with representatives of the Croatian community and visited the Faculty of Philosophy and Humanities of the University of Chile, which is expected to open a Croatian language department early next year.
