Ricardo Bermudez will make a special announcement >about official Chilean UFO Project at the 2012 International UFO >Congress this February in Fountain Hills, Arizona. <snip> That is a great news and here is some additional material on that note. In depth article about CEFAA was also written by Antoinio Huneeus titled "Ufology Goes official in Chile." It is published in July 2000 in the Fate magazine. Article talks about FIDAE 2000 - International Air and Space Fair that was held from March 27 to April 2, 2000. At the time, president of Chile, Ricardo Lagos, opened FIDAE. Inside the official program of the FIDAE, "UFO events" were also included - a closed workshop, and a two-day Symposium titled, "UFO: Analysis, Investigations and Perspectives for the New Millennium." The UFO workshop was organized by CEFAA with the logistic backing of DGAC (Chile's FAA). Fate's article goes in detail about conference and speakers. I interviewed general Bermudez 11 years ago. This is what general Bermudez shared with me in an interview few months after the FIDAE conference back in 2000: "The workshop had the general goal of "knowing the new theories, criterias and scientific tools applicable to the study of anomalous aerial phenomena". The panel recognized that "the anomalous aerial phenomenon is real and the ufo incident is a more specific and rare event. The definitions, theories and studies so far undertaken have failed to solve the many unknows and the possibility of meaningfull progress in the study of the phenomena are greater now than previous times. The group finally makes an energetic call to international cooperation at the level of governments and institutions to contribute in the exchange of data and experiences, to strenght significantly the possibility of finding answers to the unknowns currently presented by the phenomenon." At the time, Bermudez also emphasized the need of international cooperation adding that CEFAA is processing an agreement protocol with French SEPRA (now GEIPAN) and NIDS (now defunct).
