The Pacific Alliance is a new organization which seeks to promote economic integration in the Latin American region. With the signing of the Additional Protocol to the Pacific Alliance Framework Agreement in 2015 the organization further cemented its stance as a promoter of free trade and deep economic integration. The Pacific Alliance member countries currently hold a combined GDP which is comparable to ASEAN and is seeking to further consolidate its ties to the Asia Pacific region with Japan becoming an observer country in 2013. The session will have the honor to invite the Ambassadors from the four founding member countries (Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile) to discuss how the Latin American region perceives regional projects such as TPP and FTAAP as well as their outlook on Asian and Latin American relations.
