Chile President Michelle Bachelet visits the White House on June 30 to confer with President Obama, the White House announced Thursday.
The two leaders will discuss the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, as well as efforts at "expanding educational exchanges and deepening our collaboration in the areas of energy, science, and technology," said a White House statement.
Bachelet, first elected president in 2006, just began another term after taking a four-year break. Chile does not allow its presidents to serve consecutive terms.
The June 30 trip to the White House "will highlight our close relationship with Chile and our strong partnership with the Bachelet Administration on advancing peace and global security, social inclusion, and free trade," said the White House.
