The Pacific Alliance is an integration initiative focused on decreasing trade barriers and fostering the free circulation of goods, services, capital, and people. Launched in 2011 and with an eye to the Asia-Pacific region, the Alliance's four members—Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru—play an outsized role in the economy of Latin America and the Caribbean; together they account for 35 percent of the region's GDP and represent the eighth-biggest export force worldwide. In July 2019, President of Chile Sebastián Piñera assumed the pro tempore presidency of the Alliance.
