Chile, Countries by TradeChile, Countries by Trade


Can your imagination run wild well then why don’t you imagine a long and thin slice of California with a patch of the Sahara desert glued onto the north. Then we can think about Carving some of New Zealand's fjords and British Columbia's lush green forests and lakes into the south. Press all of this against a spine of tall rough and tough, rugged mountains. After we let our imagination run wild then this would be Chile, which has some of the worlds most varied and dramatic landscapes which tourist love to enjoy and cherish as memories.

Business and Economy

Chile has a market-oriented economy characterized by a high level of foreign trade. During the early 1990s, Chile's reputation as a role model for economic reform was strengthened when the democratic government of Patricio AYLWIN - which took over from the military in 1990 - deepened the economic reform initiated by the military government. Growth in real GDP averaged 8% during 1991-97, but fell to half that level in 1998 because of tight monetary policies implemented to keep the current account deficit in check and because of lower export earnings - the latter a product of the global financial crisis.

Major Cities

The major cities in this country are Santiago,Antofagasta,Puente Alto,San Viña del Mar,Bernardo,Talcahuano,Temuco,Valparaíso.
