SANTIAGO, May 16 (Xinhua) — The book “Chile 2050: One country, four presidents”, released Thursday, demonstrates, despite their differences, the vision of the State of former presidents Eduardo Frei Ruiz-Tagle; Ricardo Lagos; Michelle Bachelet, and Sebastián Piñera.

The text, edited by Ediciones UC, was launched under the auspices of the Latin American Center for Economic and Social Policies of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (Clapes UC), in Santiago, where the Chilean president Gabriel Boric and the former Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos participated. .

Boric stated in his speech that despite the differences between the four former presidents there are “many agreements regarding the future”, which is why the compilation of their presentations is “tremendously interesting” as “an invitation to think about 26 more years”, since the “Politics time” passes very quickly.

In that sense, he highlighted that men and women of state have to be able to think beyond the situation “and start acting now and I think this book helps us in that direction.”

He also highlighted the convergence of different political sectors in generating State policies, such as policies on non-conventional renewable energies in the southern nation, transversal to presidential periods.

For his part, Santos highlighted “the message and example” that Chile gives for his country, for the region and for the world in “times of so much effervescence”, since, despite the fact that “the role of the former presidents has always been cause of controversy”, this text contains so much consensus that “it facilitates transversal participation and constructive dialogue”.

The former Colombian president, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2016, highlighted that the book is a tribute to former President Piñera (2010-2014 and 2018-2022), who died this year in a plane accident at the age of 74.

Meanwhile, the director of Clapes UC and editor of the book, Felipe Larraín, noted that this meeting “is a clear testimony of the vigor of our republican spirit and the democratic strength of our nation.”
