Chile’s Minister leads drive to electromobility

Manuel Manrique spoke to Paola Tapia, Transport and Telecommunications Minister, Chile about her work with local governments, and how she is helping Santiago develop a 21st century transport network

How does the ministry work and interact with local and municipal governments?

To develop efficient public policies and in accordance with the objective of advancing the decentralisation of the country, we need to work in a coordinated manner with the different institutional channels, as well as with regional and local governments.

To this end, the Ministry of Transport has regional representatives (SEREMIS or Ministerial Regional Secretaries), who are in charge of leading the various initiatives that the ministry promotes, in addition to reporting on progress and possible incidents. It is through them that coordination with local governments is carried out.

Given our geography, reinforcing connectivity is an aspect that we are working on continuously. During the government of President Michelle Bachelet, important progress was made. For example, a boat service was inaugurated that crosses 770 kilometres of Chilean Patagonia, from Puerto Yungay to Puerto Natales. This trip was previously done by plane or by crossing through Argentine territory.
