Continuous and wide-ranging consultations with stakeholders both in Chile and the EU ensure a high degree of the SIA’s transparency, as well as enrich the analysis with information “from the ground”, and provide feedback on draft results. The main channels for communication and consultation – apart from this website and social media – are:

  • Interviews and surveys, including online surveys, with key stakeholders;
  • Civil society dialogue meetings in the EU; and
  • Stakeholder workshops in Chile.

We will hold a range of interviews and one-to-one meetings with private sector and civil society organisations and other key stakeholders, both in the EU and Chile.

In addition, three online surveys, aiming at different target groups and focussing on different sustainability aspects of the modernised Agreement, are currently open (until 31 October 2018). Please participate and let us know what you think of the agreement's modernisation! If possible, please use the online version of the survey. For your convenience, PDF versions are also available below which you can print and fill in, and send to us. Many thanks!

Civil society dialogue (CSD) meetings organised by DG Trade are regular meetings where civil society and the Commission discuss about the EU’s trade policy. Three such meetings will be devoted to a discussion of the SIA:

For further details in particular regarding conditions of participation and registration, please consult DG Trade’s CSD website.

A first workshop will take place in Santiago on 31 July 2018 at 15:00, at the PUCV's lecture hall at Antonio Bellet 314, Providencia. This will serve to present and discuss the study methodology and initial findings as included in the inception report. If you are interested in participating, please contact us!

A main stakeholder workshop in Chile is planned for late September 2018. It will serve to present and discuss the draft interim report and collect additional information from Chilean interest groups.

In addition, semi-digital workshops are planned to ensure widespread and ongoing consultation with Chilean stakeholders. One or two workshops in the North and/or South of the country are planned in order to expand geographical outreach.
