Sparks Fly Between Chile and Peru
Feb 19, 2018 | 09:00 GMT
- Chile's relationship with Peru has improved since 2014, when the International Court of Justice issued a final ruling over their territorial dispute. That trend will continue this year as both countries prepare to connect their electricity systems.
- Chile's need to increase the electricity supply to its growing lithium industry will play a key role in the drive for energy integration projects with Peru.
- Chile's recently elected president, Sebastian Pinera, will assume office in March and is likely to continue pursuing this trend.
