FDI in Chile jumps 28% in 2018

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Chile soared 28% to USD 8.22bn in 2018, M-Brain News Monitoring reported citing figures released by the local central bank. This is the first increase of foreign investment inflow in the country in three years and it also represents the biggest growth rate since 2011.

This positive figure was mainly driven by companies’ reinvested profits, a component which reached USD 7.80bn last year. The recovery in the price of copper also contributed significantly to FDI increase in 2018, the Chilean central bank announced.

Overall, the country recorded its highest level of foreign investments since 2012, when it attracted USD 10.81bn.
