Ruth Ann MinnerThis year celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the Chilean and American Chamber of Commerce, and we look forward to celebrating this special occasion with a great party at the 11th Annual “Friend of Chile” Award Luncheon on Thursday, November 20th at the Union League. The Chilean and American Chamber is honoring the Governor of Delaware, Ruth Ann Minner.

The Chamber has had many successes and moves from strength to strength. It plays a particularly important role in promoting bilateral Chile-U.S. business, which is at the heart of the remarkable partnership between the countries.

During the past year, Chilean trade with the Delaware River Valley exceeded $1 billion. Of this, fruits and vegetables were valued at $855 million. Last year, Chile shipped over 58 million cases of fruit to the ports of the Delaware River. The region derives significant and increasing economic benefit from the strong and growing trade relationship between Chile and Delaware.
