International cooperation between Chile and Brazil is framed within the framework of the Basic Agreement for Scientific, Technical and Technological Cooperation between the Federative Republic of Brazil and the Republic of Chile, subscribed on July 26, 1990 and in Complementary Protocols to the aforementioned Agreement subscribed on later dates.

Among the regional actions of technical cooperation managed by AgCI and to which Brazil has been convened for the period 2003- 2008 noteworthy are, among others, the Regional Seminar: "Trade Scenarios and Business Opportunities for Bolivia , Brazil, Argentina, and Peru through the Chilean North Macro-zone" (Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, April 13 and 14 ,2003); the Regional Seminar JCPP "Systems of Risk Management, Occupational Health, Environment and Quality in the Competitiveness of Mining Companies" (Copiapó, Chile, November 22 to 26, 2003); the Inter-parliamentary Regional Meeting "Democracy , Governance and Political Parties in Latin America" (Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 15 and 16, 2004); the different International Courses Organized by AgCI and JICA in the period 2003- 2008, as "Training in Geological Tools for the Sustainable Development of Countries", "Commercial Farming of Mollusks", "Environmental Restoration for a Sustainable Management of Hydrographic Basins", among others.

Likewise, in the years 2006 and 2007 AgCi within the program of "Chile Schools" supported four schools in Brazil, located in Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador (Bahia) and Brasilia, providing them with computers and the improvement of facilities.

In addition, managing and teaching personnel from these schools were invited to participate in two training seminars and exchange of educational experiences organized by AgCI and the Chilean Ministry of Education in 2007 and 2008.

In 2007, specific actions were registered regarding cooperation in Agroecology and support of Brazil's ABC to AgCI in systems of Management of International Cooperation.
