As host of this year’s APEC 2019 in November and organizer of the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP25) in December, Chile will be on the global spotlight again.
Over several years, Chile has earned a reputation for being an ideal business hub in South America because of its open economy and business-friendly policies. In the 2018 Global Competitiveness Report, the country was 33rd among other 137 countries and 56th in Ease of Doing Business.
Apart from its ratification of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement Partnership (CPTPP) in 2018, Chile also has more international free trade agreements than any other country in the world, which strengthened its position as a leading gateway to South America and further nurture long-running trade relations.
The report seeks to identify the organizations across the Chilean business economy that seek closer collaboration with Japan across various areas namely technology, logistics, intellectual property, agriculture, aquaculture, education and tourism.
Highlighting Chile and Japan’s strong, long-running diplomatic relations of over a century, this year’s report aims to provide a platform for local companies and organizations to send a strong message of commitment back to the Land of the Rising Sun.
