Sumario:The article analyses Chile's initiative to encourage convergence between Alliance of the Pacific and MERCOSUR, proposed by Michelle Bachelet's government within the framework of the regional priority declared by Chile's foreign policy. To this end, reviewing literature and press, this work examines the trends occurred in the Latin American integration process and the options followed by Chile in this respect, while comparing both blocks. The paper concludes that, in addition to reflecting on the possibility of convergence, it is essential to consider this process as a necessity, in order to favor the interests of the region on international insertion.
