As a result of the presentation of Credential Letters as Ambassador of Portugal, in Santiago, Chile to the President of the Republic, Mrs. Michelle Bachelet, on October 13th, I am pleased in welcoming to anyone visiting this space of Embassy of Portugal in which you will find information that I hope you find this useful and can also contributing to strengthened relationship between Portugal and Chile within all levels and sectors.
Both countries have maintained friendly relations and cooperation in different areas since a long time, which have become more prominent in recent years, not only in the framework of bilateral relationship but in the context of international institutions. The relationships between Portugal and Chile are going through an excellent phase, from the political, economic, social and cultural terms, based in a vast an increasing number of interests in common and a multiplicity of initiatives and joint actions that we pretend to broaden and deepen.
Thus, is my desire that this website facilitate the access of national citizens and foreign to our Consular Affairs, besides trying to start a dialogue with its users, to provide resources and to receive your comments and suggestions, with the purpose of a continual improvement of the quality of public services provided.
The proximity and the deepening of relations between the two countries present challenges. As Ambassador I intend to face those challenges.
