Prensa Piñera: “The Atlantic has a lot to say and can regain its leading role”

/05.07.14/. - Today at the FAES Campus Sebastián Piñera, former President of Chile, argued that “the political centre of the world has shifted towards the Pacific, but the Atlantic has a lot to say and can regain its leading role”. He defined the Transatalntic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the free trade agreement that is being negotiated between the European Union and the United States, as “a step in the right direction”. Jaime García-Legaz, Secretary of State for Trade, who introduced Piñera, stressed that “Spain cannot afford to waste its capacity to access the Atlantic basin in a privileged way”.

Prensa The Power of Convictions

We are right and we know it. And we will also make you know it. It sounds simple, but the power of conviction is frequently disregarded. We've been able to see an example of this in the first round of the Chilean elections last November, and we have also seen it before in other countries like Colombia or Mexico. While we must acknowledge that the electoral campaign of the right was atypical–with its candidate Pablo Longueira quitting–staying 20 points behind the winner is far from being considered even acceptable.

Prensa Chile's Paradox

Chile has held its first round of the presidential elections. 6.5 million Chileans out of 13 million registered voters have cast their vote (low poll attendance). In this Sunday election, the left, led once again by Michelle Bachelet, has obtained a comfortable victory, although not enough for a final victory. With 46.68% of the votes, there will be a second round where the Concertation will confront Evelyn Mattei, who won 25% of the votes. 

Prensa Chile Loses its Way

The upcoming Chilean election of November 17 already has a clear winner. And I'm not referring to the person who will surely prevail in the election, Michelle Bachelet, but to the State, a State that promises to take care of our security, guarantee a wide range of rights, ensure better wages and good pensions, in sum, a big, powerful and generous benefactor State, like a mother who just wants our well-being and never abandons us.

“Existen momentos históricos en los que las naciones deben elegir entre quedarse atrapadas en paradigmas del pasado o avanzar hacia futuros renovadores. Éste era uno de esos momentos para Chile” “Durante la campaña electoral, Sebastián Piñera y sus equipos demostraron tener un proyecto de país con ambición de futuro y una agenda política de reformas que exigía sacrificios pero que llevaría a la prosperidad”
