Webinar 1 CCS Credit

Chile has been successful in attracting foreign direct investment despite having a small economy concentrated in natural resources. This success is due to a combination of a strong rule of law, transparency in regulatory processes and the development of government institutions. Chile was the first South American country to join the OECD in 2010 and has signed nearly 50 trade agreements with other economies. This webinar will address the regulations, rules and procedures that must be followed to best take advantage of this favorable environment.
