The president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, valued as “very fruitful and fruitful” the meeting he held this Monday in Montevideo with his counterpart Luis Lavalle Pou, within the framework of the tour he is making in Uruguay, Paraguay, and Colombia. Both leaders met in the morning at the residence of Suárez and Reyes and there the Chilean extended to the Uruguayan head of state the invitation for the country to join the Humboldt Project, which Chile has been developing together with Argentina and Brazil, which plans to extend a submarine optical cable and thus connect South America with the Asia-Pacific region.
This was assured by Piñera hours later in a meeting with the press at the Legislative Palace, where he met with Vice President Beatriz Argimón and toured the building. He also aimed to join forces and collaborate on cybersecurity “in such a way as to protect our increasingly digitized society.”
