Chile is considered the most stable, secure, and prosperous country in South America and a strategic and like-minded partner that values its privileged relationship with the U.S. based on shared values and mutual interests.  Chile is one of the most consolidated economies in South America. It ranks 1st in the ranking of competitiveness (WEF 2020), income per capita, globalization, economic freedom, and low perception of corruption in the region.  Chileans have the highest credit rates and the most disposable income in South America.

The U.S. and Chile are strategic partners whose agricultural relationship has been guided by collaboration and trade capacity building allowing Chile to become a regional leader with a competitive trade market.  Because of the U.S.-Chile FTA, Chile dropped all tariffs on agricultural products to “zero” as of January 2015. 

The U.S. is the second-largest supplier of agricultural and related products to Chile. And Chile is the largest market for American consumer-oriented products in the region. 

U.S. Food & Agricultural Product Imports to Chile, By the Numbers

  • U.S. Consumer-Oriented Foods - US$886 million (2021)
  • U.S. Processed Foods - US$654 million (2021)
