Chile’s Independence Day


Secretary of State

On behalf of the Government of the United States and the American people, I send our best wishes to the people of Chile as you celebrate your Independence Day on September 18.


As long-standing partners with shared democratic values, Chile and the United States collaborate closely on a wide range of shared priorities for our hemisphere, and we both benefit from deep economic and people-to-people ties. This past year has been especially challenging as we faced the impact of the global pandemic, but we are proud to partner with Chile to help our nations and the world combat COVID-19. We value the strong partnerships between our governments, companies, universities, and people, and look forward to working together as we move into the next year.


The United States wishes all Chileans “Felices Fiestas Patrias” and a prosperous year to come.
