As the United States-Chile Free Trade Agreement (FTA) concludes its 10th year, commercial trade, both in products and services, continues to be a resounding success. As of January 1, 2004, duties were reduced to zero on 90% of U.S. exports to Chile with all remaining tariffs to be phased out by 2015.

In 2012, United States exports to Chile exceeded $19 billion and the United States remains the single largest direct investor in Chile, representing 24.2% of all net foreign direct investment, from 1974 to 2010. Spain follows closely with 20.8%, and Canada is third at 18.5%.

Join us for the “Boost your Bottom Line with the U.S. - Chile Free Trade Agreement" webinar” on Wednesday, February 19. This last chapter of the Trade Winds 2014 – The Americas Webinar Series will bring you the latest on Ecuador's growth and the opportunities this market offer to American companies in many industries.
