On September 20, 2023, Special Representative of the Chinese Government on Latin American Affairs Qiu Xiaoqi attended and addressed the reception marking the 213th anniversary of Chile's independence.

Special Representative Qiu Xiaoqi extended warm congratulations on the 213th anniversary of Chile's independence, and wishes Chile greater achievements on the path to development and revitalization. Qiu said Chile took the lead in establishing diplomatic relations with China among South American countries in 1970. For more than half a century, China and Chile have always worked jointly for common progress. The two sides should carry forward the spirit of making pioneering efforts, continue the traditional friendship between China and Chile, and work together for high-quality Belt and Road cooperation, so as to inject more impetus into the development of bilateral relations and jointly create a better future for China-Chile relations.

Chilean Ambassador to China Rene Mauricio Hurtado Navia said that Chile has always been at the forefront in developing relations with China and has worked with China to create a number of "firsts" in relations between Latin American and Caribbean countries and China. Chile thanks China for providing strong support and assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic, and hopes to strengthen communication and cooperation with China in such fields as politics, trade, science and technology, and people-to-people and cultural exchanges, and join hands in the Belt and Road cooperation, in a bid to promote Chile-China relations to continue to be a fine example of relations between developing countries and contribute to Latin America-China relations.
