Chile is rich in mineral resources and mining activity. The area is also developing agriculture, focused mainly on tropical fruits, fishing and tourism.
This multiplicity of geographic zones offers an enormous potential for economic activities linked to Chilean natural resources. Additionally, Chile is one of the region’s most sophisticated retail markets. Sales were USD98.52bn in 2013, and over the next four years are expected to increase a total of 13%. Strong local retailers continue investing in organic growth across the region.
