Let’s make your next project happen

We are the government agency responsible for promoting Chile in the global market as a destination for foreign direct investment, serving as a bridge between the interests of overseas investors and the business opportunities the country offers and providing world-class services that are in line with the country’s economic development policies.

We implement all types of initiatives whose purpose is to publicize, promote, coordinate and implement actions that seek to foster the entry of foreign direct investment (FDI) into Chile.

We provide general information about Chile, its economic and social environment, its legal framework and its policies on foreign investment, offering specific information about how to start a business as well as the procedures and regulation with which all investors must comply in order to bring FDI into the country.

We publish regular reports about Chile’s business climate as well as about specific investment opportunities in both public and private projects.
