The work undertaken by the Pacific Alliance has awakened the interest of the Asian counterparts as evidenced in the meeting held by the GAN (High Level Group) and Japan’s ambassador for Latin America and the Caribbean, Yasushi Takase, last week. They met to discuss a future agenda for cooperation.
I suggest that cooperation should include areas such as the National Quality Infrastructure of the PA members and… why not? programs that could help PA entrepreneurs to meet the technical regulations required to access the Japanese markets. It could also include food security, clean energy sources and climate change research, sustainable technologies and innovation in general.
