China and Chile are traditionally friendly. Chile is the first South American country to establish diplomatic relations with China. It is one of the most stable and prosperous countries in South America and one of the world’s major exporters of agricultural products and minerals. It is understood that since the signing of the China-Chile Free Trade Agreement in 2005, China has been Chile’s largest trading partner. Currently, 98% of Chinese products enjoy zero-tariff treatment in Chile. The Chilean government has been subsidizing foreign-invested companies investing in high-tech in Chile. In addition, Chile is taking advantage of its proximity to the United States to build an investment service platform for China in Latin America and around the world, providing timely and efficient services to overseas customers of Chinese companies.
