China-Chile: “Closer than ever”

We want to thank the presence of authorities, senior executives, entrepreneurs and Chinese investors in the third version of Chileweek. We make available on this site the documents, presentations and other tools deployed during Chileweek 2017, as another way of thanking each one of the attendees and with the purpose of continuing to promote the opportunities that Chile offers to the investors of China

Over the years, Chile and China have built up solid relations of friendship and trust. In 1970, our country became the first in South America to establish diplomatic relations with China and, since then, cultural exchange and trade between the two countries have grown together with their economic and social development, transforming Chile into one of China’s main trading partners in Latin America and China into our single largest trading partner. Chile was also the first country to sign an FTA with China in 2005 and this agreement has served to facilitate bilateral trade, which reached US$31,474 million in 2016. However, in the case of Chinese investment in Chile, the situation has until now been rather different.

The director of InvestChile, Carlos Álvarez, who confirmed the willingness of the government of President Michelle Bachelet to deepen ties with China. Álvarez announced the opening of an Investment Promotion Office in the Asian giant in 2018, in addition to the offices that will be opened in the United States, Germany, and Japan in the coming months.

This suggests that we are now seeing a turning point as regards Chinese investment in Chile and this is something that InvestChile wants to encourage and support. That is why, as an agency, we have renewed our commitment to assisting Chinese companies in their arrival to Chile, providing them with services and information in their own language and, in the framework of ChileWeek, organizing a series of activities in Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Chinese investment is welcome in our country and InvestChile wants to be its port of entry.

Thank you for having us accompanied and we leave you with available information, data, documents, presentations and other resources presented in the Chileweek 2017.
