In March 2014 Michelle Bachelet returned as President of Chile, having previously served as president between 2006-2010 becoming the first woman in her country to do so. Sebastián Piñera was the president in between these two terms, and represented a different proposition to Bachelet's Socialist Party.
With this in mind, this panel will evaluate of the return of Bachelet and any likelihood of change in policy and direction for Chile now and in the coming years. The discussion will look at the economic indicators, the outlook for business and the political direction.
Canning House is delighted to welcome Carlos Fortin, Research Associate at the Institute of Development Studies, and Rodrigo Aguilera, Editor/Economist at the Economist Intelligence Unit to speak at this event.
