The Chilean economy has doubled in size over the last decade and is not only South America’s fifth largest economy, it also has the continent’s highest level of Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
The UK is the sixth largest foreign investor in Chile, with exports of goods and services worth over £1.5 billion in 2013.
And despite it having a smaller population than five other South American countries, Chile is the UK’s second largest export destination for that continent.

Where is Chile?
Chile runs along the whole south western, Pacific coastline of South America, and borders Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, Argentina to the east, and the Drake Passage in the far south. Chilean territory includes the Pacific islands of Juan Fernández, Salas y Gómez, Desventuradas, and Easter Island in Oceania.
What’s the best time to call Chile from the UK?
Santiago is a over 7,000 miles from London and flight times clock in at almost seventeen hours – with at least one stop along the way – so not convenient for quick business trips.
Despite the huge distance between the two countries though, Chile is juts three hours behind the UK, so probably best to make your business calls in the afternoon or early evening to fit in with their local business hours.
