Dr. Michael Beck and Mr. Christopher Tucker were in Santiago, Chile from September 11 – 15, 2017 to support a series of EXBS-sponsored workshops aimed at assisting the government of Chile in developing a strategic trade control system. The first event, on September 12, focused on the importance of a legal framework for controlling arms and dual-use exports.  The second event, on September 13, was an awareness building discussion of the political rationale for a strategic trade management law.  The third event, on September 14, was a closed discussion for developing a plan toward a new legal framework for a Chilean STC system.  The events brought together a range of audiences throughout the Chilean government and strategic industry and was hosted at ANEPE, the Academia Nacional de Studios Politicos y Estrategicos.
