Gov. Jay Inslee signed an agreement with Chilean Ambassador Alfonso Silva Navarro in Seattle yesterday to strengthen ties between Washington and Chile, and advance areas of mutual interest.
“Our two regions have so much in common,” Inslee said. “There are a lot of high tech innovation going on in both of our communities. When we combine forces on things like technology, green energy, and climate change, we make each of our communities stronger.”
Yesterday’s agreement builds on the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that Inslee signed with Chile in Paris during the 2015 international climate change conference, and builds on official delegation visits from Chile in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
The signed MOU continues cooperation on various issues including clean energy, climate change, disaster risk education (such as forest fire or earthquake response), economic development and innovation, and artificial intelligence (AI).
