Invitation to Special Lecture “The Future of Chile-Japan Business Relations” (Dec. 6, 2017)

Year 2017 marks the 120th anniversary of the relations between Japan and Chile. The two countries formally established the diplomatic relations in September 1897 by signing the Treaty of Amity, Commerce and Navigation. The history of the trade relations between the two countries can be traced back to more than a century ago, when Japan had imported saltpeter or Chilean Nitrate as an important source of plant nutrients. Since then, the relationship has significantly expanded both in trade and investments, notably in the areas of minerals and metals, and even more so in recent years, as we see Chilean wines and food stuffs such as salmon, trout, and pork abundant on shelves in the supermarkets anywhere in Japan today.

Taking advantage of this occasion, the Japan Association of Latin America and the Caribbean (JALAC) and the Japanese Chapter of Japan-Chile Business Cooperation Committee in cooperation with Asociacion Nippo-Chilena are greatly honored to invite Professor César Ross of University of Santiago, Chile to speak on future of bilateral business relations. Professor César Ross is specialized in economic history and international relations, with special focus on the relationship with Japan and other East Asian countries. In 2007, he published the book “Chile y Japón, 1973-1989: de la incertidumbre a la alianza estratégica” (Chile and Japan, 1973-1989: from uncertainty to the strategic alliance) and is preparing to publish its sequel.

This lecture will undoubtedly offer us fresh insight into WIN-WIN relations in future. Please join us.
