Colombia to host February’s Pacific Alliance Summit

Alianza del Pacífico

This February 10th, Colombia’s Cartagena de Indias will play host to the Pacific Alliance Summit, and with it, several of the region’s most prominent officials, reported a national news outlet Tuesday. 

Meeting in the Caribbean coastal city will be Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Chilean President Sebastian Piñera, Peruvian President Ollanta Humala and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, along with other representatives from the four formative Pacific Alliance countries.

Santos is recently returning from a trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he led a panel discussion on the Pacific Alliance, along with Humala and Peña Nieto.

The Cartagena talks will reportedly focus around expanding access to goods and services among Pacific Alliance member countries, and analyzing the future prospects of “observer” states.

Established in the summer of 2012 at the insistance of President Santos, the Pacific Alliance is part of a broader Colombian policy of global free trade. The Andean nation, which also signed a Free Trade Agreement with the United States that summer, also has a trade pact with the European Union and is in the process of negotiating similar alliances with South Korea and China.
