There are two free trade zones in Chile: the Free Zone of Iquique (ZOFRI), Region I, in the far north, and the Free Zone of Punta Arenas (PARANEZON), Region XII, in the far south. The free trade areas offer a number of opportunities for Hong Kong companies. First of all, Chile's free trade areas have advantages in location, linking the Pacific Ocean on one side with the rest of South America on the other. Products from Asia can reach CHile's ports and be re-exported to other South American countries. In fact, Chile's free trade areas are designated in the coastal areas to tap this opportunity. Besides, Hong Kong companies can use the warehouses and transportation facilities there to help reduce the delivery lead time to match up better with their market penetration strategies for and respond swifter to feedbacks from neighbouring markets.

I would like to talk to you further about this.  Is this statement slightly over-simplified ?  If not, I will move my operations from the USA to Chile.

 

Love to hear back.

Are the preferential policies fit for all legal products? For example the car radio and the head unit products.
