Israel has been accepted as an observer state of the Pacific Alliance.

“The Pacific Alliance is a regional integration initiative whose member states are Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. The Pacific Alliance was created on April 28, 2011.”

The decision to accept Israel as an observer state was made [February 10th] at a Pacific Alliance summit in Cartagena, Colombia with the participation of the member state presidents. Israel thus joins the US and Canada – among others – as an observer state. As an observer state, Israel will be invited to take part in the staff work of the Pacific alliance and attend its conferences, which will facilitate the advancement of cooperation with its member states.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said:

“I thank the leaders of the Pacific Alliance member states for accepting Israel as an observer to the important organization that they head. This is an additional step in ensuring the continued growth of the Israeli economy. We are diversifying the State of Israel’s international markets.”
