Chilean President Michelle Bachelet Visits Mexico

Mexican President Felipe Calderon played host to Chilean President Michelle Bachelet last week in an effort to strengthen relations and encourage regional integration.  The two agreed to form an advisory council for the Strategic Association Agreement, or AAE, which was signed in January 2006 by their predecessors, Vicente Fox and Ricardo Lagos.  In addition to economic relations, Calderon and Bachelet also found common ground on agricultural and environmental issues.
