Though already in existence for three years, let me introduce to a worldwide readership the Antitrust and Competition Center of the Universidad Catolica de Chile. It is the only center of its kind in Chile and in its brief existence it has become the leading academic institution about this topic in the country. The Center organizes several activities: conferences, courses, publications and research about antitrust. It recently signed an agreement with the Fiscalía (the antitrust agency of Chile) to undertake joint research work on competition advocacy. Last Friday they received a delegation from the OECD to talk about the state of antitrust in Chile. Given the antitrust talent in Chile and at the Center, I hope that our readers take an interest in the Center's future development.
