Chilean presidential candidate, José Antonio Kast, held “productive” meetings in Washington on Tuesday and Wednesday with businessmen, representatives of think tanks and Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
“We are ending what has been this brief tour of the United States, which has been very productive, very profitable,” Kast said Wednesday in a statement recorded by his press team and sent to the media.
Kast held a private lunch on Tuesday with representatives of the financial, technology and renewable energy sectors with the aim of presenting them with the economic proposals he has made during the presidential campaign, especially his desire to attract foreign investment.
His press team did not reveal the names of the businessmen who met with Kast.
On Tuesday, the candidate also met with Republican Party Senator Marco Rubio, with whom he discussed free trade agreements, Kast himself explained in the recorded statement.
On Wednesday, Kast held a roundtable discussion at the Inter-American Dialogue think tank and later met with Susan Segal, president and CEO of the Americas Society/Council of the Americas (AS/COA).
Chile will hold the second round of presidential elections on December 19.
