The president of Eurochile Business Foundation, Vicente Caruz opened the webinar sharing his strong believe that the circular economy will play an important role to face the enormous and complex challenge that Chile and the world face today, “To design and implement an urgent recovery that is sustainable and, at the same time, acceptable and effective from the social point of view, economic and political. The economy and society of the future will require innovation, circularity and associativity, and we also hope it will be globalized and supportive”.
