Brazil and Chile have signed a comprehensive free trade agreement, which expands, updates and modernises the 1996 prior trade agreement, responsible for eliminating import tariffs on the bilateral exchange of goods. The new agreement will cover other non-tariff topics within a year of going into effect, such as trade facilitation, e-commerce, services and the elimination of international roaming charges for data and mobile telephony, with the goal of stimulating digital commerce, service provision and tourism.
