Santiago de Chile

Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE) and the Trade Point of the Embassy of Switzerland invite you to a mission to Chile from 1st- 4th October 2019. Visit the Swiss Pavilion at Edifica, the main construction business trade show in Latin America, and various governmental organisations related to infrastructure projects (transport, energy, construction, water, healthcare, etc.).

Chile is the only OECD-member country in South America and plays the role of a trendsetter in the region. After having showed a very good economic growth in 2018, the pace of growth has slowed down in the last months due to the trade war between the USA and China. As a reaction the government launched a special economic program focusing on infrastructure projects. The so-called "Agenda de Aceleración Económica" contains an additional USD 1,382 million in public funds for infrastructure projects for the years 2019 and 2020, which should also spark further private investments.

The launch of the program offers also a lot of opportunities for Swiss companies in the infrastructure sector. 
Do not miss your chance to be part of this mission to Chile to meet various companies, private and public organisations as well as construction sites, and to network at the EDIFICA trade show to find out more about the various infrastructure projects and opportunities.

Additionally, you have the possibility to present your company as well as your products and services to relevant stakeholders and decision-makers under the umbrella of the Swiss Pavilion at the EDIFICA. The Swiss Pavilion will be organised by S-GE and the Swiss Chilean Chamber of Commerce. If you would like to participate or to present your products and services, please contact Fabio Speciale (fspeciale@s-ge.com, Direct +41 44 365 54 75 – Mobile +41 76 528 24 61)
