SANTIAGO, CHILE -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Canada Revenue Agency

The Honourable Kerry-Lynne D. Findlay, P.C., Q.C., M.P., Minister of National Revenue, today attended the inauguration of the Chilean President Michelle Bachelet in Valparaiso. Minister Findlay was accompanied by Canada's Ambassador to the Republic of Chile, Ms. Patricia Fuller.

For more than 70 years, Canada and Chile have shared diplomatic, economic, and cultural ties. Last May, the outgoing President Sebastian Pinera was in Ottawa to sign the renewal of the Canada-Chile Strategic Partnership Framework. With emphasis on trade liberalization and support for various sectors, the two countries have opened new markets, creating new opportunities for businesses and jobs in both Canada and Chile.

While in Chile, Minister Findlay met with Mr. David Baril, President of the Chile-Canada Chamber of Commerce and Vice-President of Operations for Teck Resources Limited, and Mr. Andres Kuhlmann, also a member of the Chile-Canada Chamber of Commerce and General Manager of Transelec S.A. Discussions focused on current Canadian business activities in Chile, the country's current economic environment, and future opportunities for the Canadian business market.

Minister Findlay also met with key members of the incoming Chilean government, including President Michelle Bachelet, Foreign Affairs Minister Heraldo Munoz, and Minister of Finance Alberto Arenas. On behalf of the Canadian government and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Minister Findlay thanked outgoing President Sebastian Pinera and Foreign Minister Alfredo Moreno for their strong partnership with Canada.
