Chile Free Trade Agreement

The United States-Chile Free Trade Agreement (FTA) entered into force on January 1, 2004.

The United States-Chile FTA eliminates tariffs and opens markets, reduces barriers for trade in services, provides protection for intellectual property, ensures regulatory transparency, guarantees nondiscrimination in the trade of digital products, commits the Parties to maintain competition laws that prohibit anticompetitive business conduct, and requires effective labor and environmental enforcement.

In 2009, U.S. exports to Chile decreased by 26 percent to $8.8 billion, while U.S. imports from Chile decreased by 29 percent to $5.8 billion.
