How significant is the Pacific Alliance to the UK’s engagement in Latin America?

Canning House attends The House of Lords International Relations Committee evidence session to discuss the Pacific Alliance.

On Wednesday 22 May, Canning House attended the House of Lords International Relations Committee evidence session on the Pacific Alliance, an economic grouping formed by Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. These countries have come together to form an area of integration with the purpose of ensuring complete freedom in the movement of goods, services, capital, and people. The UK is an observer to the Pacific Alliance.

The Ambassadors of the four countries took questions on the organisation’s structure; its financing and decision-making process; the possibility for further UK integration into the alliance as an associate member, and whether or not the alliance intended to create a coordinated response on foreign policy and issues such as migration and organised crime.
