HC Deb 15 April 1991 vol 189 c40W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Prime Minister if, during the official visit of the President of Chile, the Government will offer improved terms of trade for Chilean exports, and increased transfer of technology and financial support for his programmes.

The Prime Minister

Chile will benefit from any market access concessions negotiated with the European Community during the GATT round. We increased our bilateral technical co-operation funds for Chile following the accession of President Aylwin's Government and are presently discussing a number of projects.

President Aylwin's visit will lead to closer links between Britain and Chile. I was able to pay tribute to the President's achievement in restoring and consolidating democracy.
