Sources linked to the organization of the working visit maintain that Minister Grau has gathered information on possible doubts that may exist in the business sector in order to clarify them in the dialogue that takes place.
Among them are the scenarios after the exit plebiscite, on September 4, whether the option of approval or rejection prevails. The reason? It is based on the direction that the country will take in the two scenarios and on the reforms that will be part of the priorities of the current executive.
Boric in front of the Chilean cry for approval
One of the highlights was the arrival of Speaker Boric at the Parliament Building in Ottawa. There, a Chilean woman visiting Canada shouted to the president that she was for the approval, which provoked a spontaneous reaction from the head of state with a “very good”, giving a thumbs up from a distance.
After that, Gabriel Boric approached the Chilean to hug her and greet her.
