Prior to the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, the Inca ruled northern Chile while an indigenous people, the Mapuche, inhabited central and southern Chile. Although Chile declared its independence in 1810, it did not achieve decisive victory over the Spanish until 1818. In the War of the Pacific (1879-83), Chile defeated Peru and Bolivia to win its present northern regions. In the 1880s, the Chilean central government gained control over the central and southern regions inhabited by the Mapuche. After a series of elected governments, the three-year-old Marxist government of Salvador ALLENDE was overthrown in 1973 by a military coup led by General Augusto PINOCHET, who ruled until a democratically-elected president was inaugurated in 1990. Sound economic policies, maintained consistently since the 1980s, contributed to steady growth, reduced poverty rates by over half, and helped secure the country's commitment to democratic and representative government. Chile has increasingly assumed regional and international leadership roles befitting its status as a stable, democratic nation.

Growth is projected to remain strong over the next two years. With an uncertain external environment, solid domestic demand will underpin growth, aided by a stable inflation environment, public infrastructure projects and a tax reform. Inequality, though decreasing, remains high as informality and unemployment remain high and social transfers low.
The central bank has started to tighten monetary policy gradually and is projected to continue doing so as stronger wages and reduced labour market slack start putting pressure on prices. The planned gradual fiscal consolidation is appropriate and will stabilise the public debt-to-GDP ratio in the short-term. However, social spending and public investment needs may require higher revenues. Improving skills, integrating the recent flow of migrants, streamlining licencing and regulations, and increasing competition in network services are key for stronger and more inclusive growth.
