Despite significant global economic headwinds, foreign investment continues to prove resilient in Chile. InvestChile closed the first half of 2022 with a total of 453 projects in its portfolio, a 22% increase over the 372 initiatives registered in June 2021.
Likewise, the projects managed by the agency could generate a total of 17,578 jobs, 49% more than for those registered during the same period last year.
“This is occurring in a context in which the global economic situation has made it extremely challenging to attract capital and it reveals the interest being shown by foreign companies to develop their projects in Chile. The work of the InvestChile team also plays a fundamental role in detecting, attracting and developing these initiatives,” explained InvestChile Director Karla Flores.
In terms of numbers, the InvestChile Portfolio – which includes investment projects in different stages of development – reached US$24.8 billion, a 3.3% increase over the same period last year.
