The Director General of International Economic Relations (DIRECON), Rodrigo Contreras, said on April 18th the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Chile and Malaysia entered into force.
"From now on 98.6% of Chilean products will enter duty free to Malaysia, for example fresh fruits, while from Malaysia to Chile 95% of total exports products will enter with zero tariff, including tropical fruits," said Contreras.
