Published since 1948, this report examines various aspects of the previous year’s macroeconomic situation in the region and makes projections for the coming months. The study also includes country notes that review the performance of the main economic indicators in the period analysed.




Several events had an important and conflicting effect on Chile’s economic development in 1965. As in other countries of the region, the international situation, together with the support provided by external credit, made it possible to increase primary commodity export earnings. On the other hand, natural disasters such as the earthquake in the north central zone at the beginning of the year and the subsequent storms seriously affected the population and the supply of agricultural products. These include certain crops, forest plantations and imports of live-stock from Argentina. Lastly, to mention only the most outstanding factors, the change of administration at the end of 1964 led the following year to the application of new economic policy guidelines, which resulted in important fiscal and other changes and in plans of even wider scope whose significance cannot yet be evaluated for certain.
