Chile

Chile is a country with a population of almost 18 million inhabitants and a GDP of USD $ 247 billion. Chile’s GDP has tripled in the last 20 years as a result of political and economic stability, a strong investment in connectivity, 26 international trade agreements, which represent 64 markets and 86% of the world’s GDP. The agricultural and food sector is currently the second most important industry, after mining, which represents 7.9% of the national GDP.

Chile has exceptional conditions for agricultural development due to the weather diversity present throughout the territory and its particular sanitary condition. All this allows Chile to export fruit, water, wines and livestock products, such as excellent quality meat and dairy products  to a wide range of global markets.

Bio-Bío Region

The Biobío mountain range zone surprises with the magnificence of the Andes Mountains. Antuco (Water and Sun in Mapudungun) commune located from Los Angeles to the east is characterized by its beautiful native forests and dense vegetation. There is the Laguna del Laja National Park where the “Salto del Laja” (Laja Falls) are located, surprising with its impressive permanent water tributaries.

Bio-Bío Region is one of the most important regions of Chile. The origin of its name is the abundant river that crosses the region from east to west. Picunches and Mapuches natives once lived on the Itata and Toltén rivers, where it is still possible to find villages with these native communities.

Characters such as Bernando O’Higgins, Arturo Prat, Violeta Parra, Gonzalo Rojas, Nicanor Parra, Marta Brunet, Marta Colvin, Roberto Bravo, Pepo, the Pincheira brothers, among many others, are originally from the region.

Considered as a huge development hub in southern Chile, with more than 20 universities, its capital is considered the most important cosmopolitan city of the South Cone.
