AN MICHELLE BACHELET INTERVIEW 1

Chilean President Michelle Bachelet is the country’s first female president and has been elected to the top post not once but twice. She was first elected president from 2006-2010 and then again in 2014.

President Bachelet’s personal story resonates with the Chilean public. Her father, a general, was a victim of the regime of Augusto Pinochet who took power in 1973 after a coup d’etat. Alberto Bachelet was imprisoned and tortured for opposing Pinochet. He died while being detained.

CCTV Anchor of Global Business News Rachelle Akuffo sat down with President Michelle Bachelet at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, DC, during the recent Nuclear Security Summit.

In addition to nuclear energy, they discuss education and trade, including Chile’s trade agreement with China. The agreement is being renegotiated and extended after a lucrative ten years and includes products such as copper, fruit and Chilean wine. China, in fact, has become one of Chile’s top wine exporters.

Take a listen to Rachelle’s “Americas Now” interview with the President of one of Latin America’s most prosperous nations.
