Chile has been a member of WTO (World Trade Organization) since 1995. The country has continued to reform and liberalize its already open trade regime, both unilaterally and reciprocally. since 1997, Chile’s average applied MFN tariff has fallen from 11% to 6%, and that international trade plays important role in Chile’s economy. But the increased number of Chile’s preferential trade agreements diminished the share of Chilean trade conduced under MFN conditions.
