Chile closed its borders to travelers, but this has not affected the movement of goods and merchandise. ProChile has received no reports regarding problems with cargo flights; ports are functioning normally, as is the operation of ships, and logistics chain services, all of which are taking the necessary measures to protect the health of their collaborators.
ProChile’s offices are in continuous communication with business partners to analyze the possible effects on suppliers, logistics providers, distributors, retailers, and e-commerce platforms.
ProChile has implemented a series of resources to support Chilean exporters, specifically small and medium-sized companies. One example is a contact webpage for those who are commercially affected by the pandemic to report their problems and turn to our network of commercial and regional offices. “We want exporting companies to be able to turn to ProChile to report needs, and to develop new strategies and take advantage of the use of existing tools. We will also be periodically reporting, through a bulletin, the global situation of the affected markets”, explains German Rocca, Trade Commissioner of ProChile in Miami, and Coordinator of the commercial office in The States.
