New York — As Chilean President Sebastian Pinera’s government
sets in motion its plans to attain developed-nation status for
his country by the end of the decade, Bloomberg LINK will
convene leaders from both the public and private sector, as well
as top financial experts, to focus on the country’s economy at
the Bloomberg Chile Economic Summit.

The Summit, to be held on Tuesday, August 23rd at Museo de Artes
Visuales in Santiago, Chile, will examine the economic outlook
for Chile by analyzing the country’s public and private sectors,
and will look at President Pinera’s goal to raise Chile’s GDP
per capita to European levels such as Portugal and create one
million new jobs during his four year term. Among other topics,
speakers will offer their insights on whether or not Chile can
become Latin America’s next financial hub by discussing how the
Pacific Accord may impact Chile’s marketplace and how the nation
can close its income gap and diversify its economy.

“Chile has become one of Latin America’s most interesting
emerging market success stories,” said Robert Bierman, head of
Bloomberg LINK. “Participants at the Bloomberg Chile Economic
Summit will discuss how the country can take the next steps in
development and sustain its rapid growth.”
