Together with German entrepreneurs and companies the Global Partners Bayern Association has been active in Chile for many years.
Germany is Chile's most important trading partner in the European Union. In this context, Bavaria can be a strategic partner for Chile due to its central location in the DACH region and its strength in technology, innovation, digitization, applied research and the promotion and development of companies. Already in his role as chairman of the board of Global Partner Bayern Association, our president Thomas Wüst took several opportunity to visit Chile and establish interesting contacts for research institutions and companies from Bavaria.
Among others, a project for the sustainable cultivation of medicinal herbs has developed out of these activities, which the GPB has been supporting for years as part of a larger research project.
After Chile reopened its commercial agency in Munich at the beginning of 2019, Global Partners Bayern, in cooperation with ProChile and the Bavarian Representative Office in Chile, will expand its activities in project-oriented internationalization of SMEs to foster joint exchanges and cooperation in future technologies.
