The signing indicates that relations between the two country will continue to be strengthened, the government said in a statement.

B&R News: Chile joins China’s Belt and Road Initiative
6 Nov 2018
Chile’s foreign minister on Friday arrived at the National Development and Reform Commission of China to sign the cooperation agreement between both countries, within the framework of the Beijing's ambitious global infrastructure project of Belt and Road. On the part of China, the person in charge to subscribe the agreement was the President of the National Commission of Development and Reformation, He Lifeng. After specifying the signature, Robert Ampuero declared: “By instruction of President Sebastián Piñera, we signed the memorandum of understanding between Chile and China in the framework of the Strip and Road initiative. We are happy because this initiative will allow us to enter a new stage of collaboration between both countries.” The agreement advertises Chile as a destination for Chinese investment and make the country a “landing point for investments in Latin America,” said Roberto Ampuero. Along with this the Chancellor added that “fundamentally it will allow us to explore many ways to cooperate and develop infrastructure for our country. And that is what we need in Chile, we are a country that has modernized a lot, that needs investments and financing in infrastructure with roads, ports, bridges, railway renewal among other things”. The Belt & Road initiative is a development strategy driven by China that focuses on connectivity and cooperation, mainly between China and Eurasia, based on infrastructure, trade and investment. The concept is inspired by the network of commercial routes established in the Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD), known as the Silk Road. It started in Chang'an (now Xi'an) in eastern China, and ended in the Mediterranean, connecting China with Europe. China is Chile's top trading partner, as well as that of several other countries on the continent including Brazil and Argentina. Commercial ties between the two nations have been accelerating, with a deal signed last week slashing customs controls for Chilean products shipped to China. Latin America, traditionally under Washington's sphere of influence, is increasingly embracing offers of cooperation from Beijing. China has already promised to invest $250 billion in the region over the next decade. Source: The Santiago Times

B&R News: Australian state of Victoria signs MoU with China on Belt & Road Initiative
25 Oct 2018
Victoria became the first Australian state to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with China's economic planning authority on the Belt and Road Initiative following a signing ceremony in Victoria's capital city Melbourne, the Chinese Embassy in Australia said Friday. The MoU was signed between Victoria's state government and China's National Development and Reform Commission and a ceremony was held on Thursday attended by Chinese Ambassador to Australia Cheng Jingye and the Premier of Victoria Daniel Andrews, said a statement from the website of the Chinese embassy. Business dealings with China already pump around $19.1 billion a year into Victoria's economy in merchandise trade alone, and Andrews believes the agreement will help cement Victoria as China's trade and investment gateway to Australia, the Xinhua News Agency reported on Friday. "In four years we have more than tripled Victoria's share of Chinese investment in Australia and nearly doubled our exports to China," Andrews said. When meeting with Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on September 24, Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs Marise Payne said her country values the Belt and Road initiative, and is willing to enhance collaboration with China on bilateral, regional and global agendas through dialogues, Xinhua reported.
