1. (S/NF) KUDOS TO EMBASSY SANTIAGO FOR PROVIDING TIMELY
AND RELEVANT REPORTING THAT WAS USED IN ANALYTIC PRODUCTS TO
SUPPORT THE VICE PRESIDENT’S TRIP TO CHILE IN MARCH.

2. (C/NF) REF A PROVIDED EXACT DETAILS ON THE AMOUNT OF
MONEY CHILE HAD IN ITS OVERSEAS SOVEREIGN WEALTH FUND.

3. (C/NF) ECONOMIC INFORMATION IN PRESS AS DETAILED IN REF
B WAS ALSO USEFUL.

4. (C/NF) REF C’S DETAILS ON THE GOVERNMENT’S ECONOMIC
STIMULUS PACKAGE AND HOW THEIR ECONOMIC MANAGEMENT EFFORTS
HAD WON THEM CREDIBILITY FROM NAYSAYERS PROVIDED A NICE,
CONCISE ECONOMIC OVERVIEW.

5. (C/NF) REF D CONTAINED A HELPFUL PRESS SNIPPET ON
BACHELET’S TRIP TO CUBA AND HOW IT DID NOT PLAY WELL
DOMESTICALLY.

6. (C/NF) REF E PROVIDED INSIGHTS ON HOW BACHELET WANTED TO
ENCOURAGE US POLICY DIRECTION TOWARDS RE-ENGAGEMENT. THE
SPECIFIC LANGUAGE FROM BACHELET DURING THE MEETING WAS
WELL-TIMED AND MUCH APPRECIATED.

7. (C/NF) REF F OUTLINED SPECIFIC EXAMPLES OF AREAS WHERE
CHILE HAS LOOKED TO COOPERATE WITH THE UNITED STATES, WHICH
ANALYSTS WERE ABLE TO FLAG IN FINISHED PRODUCTION.

8. (C/NF) REF G WAS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF CHILE’S
WILLINGNESS TO HELP ON ISSUES THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO THE US
(I.E., WELCOME EXPELLED DEA PERSONNEL FROM BOLIVIA), BUT HOW
THEY EXPRESS A PREFERENCE FOR DOING SO QUIETLY.

9. (C/NF) THE READOUT ON CODEL ENGEL’S MEETING WITH
PRESIDENT BACHELET AS DETAILED IN REF H PROVIDED ANOTHER
GREAT TIDBIT ON BACHELET CITING THE "PARTNERSHIP OF EQUALS"
BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND CHILE, SOMETHING SHE HAS
REFERRED TO BEFORE.

10. (C/NF) FINALLY, REF I WAS A NICE SUMMARY OF THE OUTCOME
OF CHILE’S OCTOBER ELECTIONS.

11. (S/NF) ANALYSTS GREATLY APPRECIATE THE EMBASSY’S
COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENT DOMESTIC POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC
REPORTING AND WANT TO ENSURE THAT EMBASSY KNOWS THEIR CABLES
ARE CITED IN FINISHED PRODUCTION FOR TOP POLICYMAKERS IN
WASHINGTON. THANKS AGAIN, AND WELL DONE.
