On November 17, on the initiative of Belgo-Perú, Belgo-Perú, Belgo-Chile, EURACEN (Central America) and BelCol (Colombia) chambers of commerce organized in Brussels a seminar on the existing investment opportunities within the Pacific Alliance.

Created in 2012, the Pacific Alliance is an integration mechanism and a free trade area between Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, with Costa Rica joining it in 2013.

In 2016, the combined GDP of the Pacific Alliance member countries represented 40% of the total for Latin America and the Caribbean (compared to 44% for Mercosur), and 50% of external trade, which placed it as the 8th largest economy in the world.

A hundred people attended the seminar, including several ambassadors.
