Eduardo Bonilla was elated at the continued bi-lateral ties the countries enjoy and hopes to strengthen those during his tenure.
Saint Lucia has benefitted tremendously from Chile’s technical-cooperation over the past 22 years in agriculture, language and diplomacy training.
Bonilla conveyed his country’s greetings to the government and people of Saint Lucia.
“On this occasion I must recall the president of Chile, His Excellency Sébastian Piera specifically instructed me to convey to you and through your excellency to the people of the Commonwealth of Saint Lucia his deepest sentiment of friendship and the desire to maintain and increase the excellent relationship that we’ve enjoyed for many years,” Bonilla said.
Dame Louisy recalled that Saint Lucia and Chile have enjoyed a meaningful and friendly relationship over the last two decades. The governor general was pleased at the thrust of the Chilean foreign policy towards regional integration.
“Saint Lucia has benefitted from Chile’s bi-lateral cooperation with CARICOM States and we look with eager anticipation to greater collaboration between the region and Chile within the framework of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC),” Louisy said.
The presentation of the Letters of Credence from the president of Chile to Saint Lucia’s governor general took place at Government House.
