Woman of the Day 2015 #7

As President of Chile, Veronica Michelle Bachelet Jeria has revolutionized trade relations between nations of South America and Asia-Pacific. She enacted free trade agreements with China, Japan, India, New Zealand, Singapore and Brunei. Many of these agreements were unprecedented, and have changed the course of her nation’s economic future.

Her election and administration is said to have been the catalyst for cultural changes in Chile, both in terms of women’s equality and the nation’s political and economic climate in general.
