ASEAN

Connecting you with South East Asia, the world's fastest growing region

Companies in Chile and ASEAN can work together in multiple areas:

  • Importers of goods and/or services

  • Exporters of goods and/or services

  • Trading or Brokering

  • Representation / Distribution

  • Franchisees

  • Investors / Partners / investment recipients

  • Suppliers of foreign trade services

  • Local assistance providers (support services for Chile, LATAM and ASEAN)

There are a great number of ASEAN companies that seek to buy, sell and invest with Latin America. In this context, Chile is uniquely positioned to gather and work with this interest. Therefore, Chile is to ASEAN a potential:

  • Business partner

  • Gateway to Latin America

  • Platform for preferential access to international markets

  • Investment Destination

  • Tourism Destination

Chile today exports only 275 products to ASEAN, with the potential to export 3,365 more products.

Chile today imports 1,605 ASEAN products, with the potential to import 2,852 more products

Opportunities to export SERVICES and participate in global value chains, especially in agriculture, aquaculture, finance and securities, engineering and design, mining and ITC.

Tourism, as a key driver of cultural exchange and people, presents a series of opportunities for companies interested in participating in this growing industry.

On the one hand ASEAN is increasingly a tourist destination from Chile and Latin America and on the other hand, there is interest in developing high value tourism in that region and also investing in Chile. In 2018, Bangkok city (Thailand) became the most visited city on the planet.

With economies resistant to global adverse circumstances, ASEAN is a center for global investments.

Since 2014, this region attracts more FDI than China and in 2017, total FDI reached USD 137 billion.

There are government incentives for FDI in numerous sectors, including Manufacturing, Agriculture, Services and Advanced Technology (Economy 4.0).

 

Our regions face common challenges. It is possible to develop initiatives to face these challenges in the areas of:

  • Innovation and entrepreneurship

  • Gender

  • Education

  • Mobility of human capital

  • Technology transfer

  • Culture
