An Address by Wilson Witzel, Governor of Rio State
- Canning House
At this event, Wilson Witzel, Governor of Rio State, discussed “The Political and Economic Perspectives in Brazil and Rio”.
The Pacific Alliance is a regional integration initiative established by Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru in 2011. The UK is an observer.
The International Relations Committee recently conducted an inquiry to investigate the role of the Pacific Alliance, the UK's engagement with it, and how it can be used to strengthen the UK’s economic, trade and political relationship with Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru.
The report produced from the evidence sessions makes a number of recommendations on why and how engagement with the Pacific Alliance can be deepened, advocating a more coherent strategy post-Brexit.
"There is potential for the Commonwealth and the Pacific Alliance to work together. The UK, as the Chair-in-Office of the Commonwealth and an observer to the Pacific Alliance, should seek opportunities to forge links between these networks."
