Services contribute to the diversification of Chilean exports. They connect directly to innovation, knowledge and value-added exports, faithfully representing ProChile’s strategic pillars.
Chile’s service exports include technological solutions, mining services, agricultural services, engineering and architecture.
Over the past fifteen years, the sector has achieved a positive export performance with an average growth that has remained at 13% per year. Its purpose is to promote, facilitate and strengthen the positioning of service exports, concentrating on technological development to achieve greater efficiency and competitiveness.
ProChile’s service sector focus is to work with SME and large export companies that generate employment, expediting their expansion into new markets.
