The President of the Republic of Chile, Ms. Michelle Bachelet, together with the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Carlos Furche, attended the opening ceremony of the First Agricultural Technologies International Fair IFT AGRO 2016. In this context, the president underlined the importance of fulfilling the international standards in order to enter new markets, and said: “It is necessary to set up a national food harmlessness and quality agency that leads the national system so it really gives answers to the needs of the market.”

Ms. Bachelet remembered that due to the commercial treaties, Chile has a privileged access to more than four billion people (63% of the world population and 85% of the world gross domestic product), so it is necessary to set up of a system and an agency that gives our products the best international standards that allow us to enter, correctly, new markets offering good prices.

With regard to this, the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Carlos Furche, specified that the government hopes to send to the Congress, in the next months, a bill that allows to formalise the setting up of a Chilean food harmlessness and safety agency. “Chile already is an important player in this matter, and we need the institutional structure that allows us to not only define the harmlessness and safety standards, but to act as a counterpart of all the agencies already existent in the main countries of the world,” assured Mr. Furche.
