Chile at a Glance

Posted August 3rd, 2021

The Chilean & American Chamber of Commerce has faced many challenges this past year. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions that were set forth by the CDC and the City of Philadelphia, we have been unable to host large gatherings, resulting in a loss of our primary source of revenue- event sponsorship and ticket sales. With these restrictions having been lifted, we are now looking to begin having our annual programs once again, starting with our Annual Fresh Fruit Workshop and “Friend of Chile” Awards Luncheon this upcoming Autumn.

Though things have been fairly quiet here at the CACC for the past couple of months, we have not been completely stagnant. A project we have been working on is an original illustrated map of Chile that has been created to compliment our digital directory. The illustrated map features listings from CACC Membership and interesting facts about certain Chilean regions and the country’s main exports.
