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.

Indicateurs macroéconomiques

Growth is projected to accelerate to around 3.6% in the coming years supported by an improving external outlook and favourable financial conditions. Real wages will grow as salaried employment recovers, lifting private consumption and reducing income disparities. Increasing aggregate demand, a supportive monetary stance and a stable exchange rate will raise inflation.

Government spending and debt have increased but the planned fiscal consolidation should be gradual enough to leave room for needed investments in health, education and infrastructure. Streamlining licencing and regulations, raising public support for R&D and improving infrastructure would boost stalled productivity. Building on recent reforms in the education system, developing apprenticeships, and assuring relevant skills at all levels of education and activation policies, would boost productivity and inclusiveness.
