The Association Agreement in force between Chile and the European Union establishes since 2003 a free trade area without tariffs or non-tariff measures, and other benefits in a privileged relationship in the political, cultural and scientific fields. According to Direcon figures, the European Union is the third most important trading partner in Chile, with 14% of total trade in goods (as of 2017). Since the Association Agreement was launched, Chilean exports of agricultural products/food and services to the EU have practically tripled, while European exports to Chile have almost doubled in most sectors. From 2003 to date, bilateral trade has doubled, growing at an average annual rate of 6%, from US $ 8,578 million in 2003 to US $ 18,410 million in 2017. At this time the Association Agreement is in a modernization process after 15 years in force, which will allow not only better access to the European market with more favorable tariffs but also incorporate new topics such as energy, gender, environment, SMEs, services and investments, among others, and in close dialogue with civil society.
