Overview About International Trade in Chile

Main Industry Sectors

Chile's economy is dominated by the industrial and the service sectors. These two contribute to almost 95% of the GDP. The main activity sectors in Chile are mining (copper, coal and nitrate), manufactured products (agri-food processing, chemicals, wood) and agriculture (fishing, vineyard, fruits).

The agricultural sector contributes about 4% to the GDP, the industrial sector to more than 40% and the services to more than 50%. About 13% of the population work in the agricultural sector, 23% in the industries and 64% in the services.

The two main challenges in the Chilean economic are: breaking off from its traditional dependence on the price of copper (copper's production represents 50% of the country's exports, the collapse in its price during the financial crisis had a strong effect in Chile's economy) and developing the production of a self-sufficient food supply.
