The Chilean Economy in the 21st Century

In conjunction with the Embassy of Chile, and the weeklong “Viva Chile in Philadelphia” celebration, GIC welcomed Jose De Gregorio, Governor of the Central Bank of Chile. Governor De Gregorio’s presentation entitled “The Chilean Economy in the Current Global Financial Crisis” highlighted not only the resiliency of the Chilean economy, but the important economic ties between his nation and the Philadelphia region. In particular, he noted that 65% of Chilean fruit imported to the United States arrives through the Delaware River port, and is responsible for some 8,000 jobs in the region.
