The Republic of Chile, commonly known as Chile, is a South American country with a unique geographical location. It is a long narrow stretch of land which is bordered by Andes Mountain range to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Chile borders Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru by land. It is the southernmost country in the world and is the closest country to Antarctica. The Pacific islands of Juan Fernández, Isla Salas y Gómez, Desventuradas, and Easter Islands in Oceania are under Chilean control. They also claim about 1,250,000 square kilometers of Antarctica under the Chilean Antarctic Territory. The capital and largest country is Santiago and their national language is Spanish.


Chile is considered as a developing country. It is among the most economically and socially stable nations in South America. Chile’s diverse economy provides a lot of opportunities. Its industries are largely supported by the B2B sector. Its more traditional sectors like mining have been the cornerstone of their economy. New industries like fintech, e-commerce and biotech are now making a mark on the economy and could prove to be the way forwards..
