Santiago was the host of the recent 2015 International Investment Forum, a multi-sector event for leading multinational companies looking to position themselves in Chile. The Forum was attended by Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and the Minister of Economy, Luis Felipe Céspedes.
The President of the Chilean American Chamber of Commerce, Kathleen Barclay, took part in a panel discussion on investment in Chile, in which she explained that, "in Chile, there is an open economic environment for attracting investment, which means big opportunities in areas like energy. This has been possible thanks to the FTA and agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The country has achieved many years of sustained growth and the ongoing commitment of Chileans to the development of their country is clear".
