Business environment in Chile

Chile is characterized by generally sound regulation and political and economic stability. Chile's foreign investment regime is considered to be one of the most liberal in the world. The country also has an open trade policy and its economy is highly dependent on international trade which accounts for more than 60 per cent of its GDP. Chile has an extensive portfolio of signed free trade agreements including the Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement (CCFTA) and, most recently, the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). The Chilean market presents numerous business opportunities across many sectors and a favourable investment climate. Canada has a well-established trade and investment relationship with Chile and an increasing number of Canadian companies are active in the market.
