ProChile, the Chilean Trade Commission launched a ‘Chilean Week’ in Dubai from October 18-24, to mark the opening of its first diplomatic mission in the UAE and GCC.  The Chilean Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mariano Fernandez Amunategui, opened the country’s embassy in Abu Dhabi on Saturday evening.  Investment opportunities, export capabilities, and culinary and cultural diversity will be showcased at different venues across Dubai.
