Santiago, Chile, June 17, 2013 - E. J. McKay, a leading Chinese investment banking firm, has been selected by the Government of Chile's Foreign Investment Committee to recruit Chinese investors to attend the International Investment Forum Chile 2014. The forum, which takes place January 13-16, 2014 in Santiago, Puerto Paras, and Calama, will connect international companies with investment opportunities in Chile.
One of Latin America's most stable and prosperous nations, Chile leads the region in measurements such as competitiveness, economic openness, and low perception of corruption. Chile is known for its natural resources and agricultural products, as well as its growing tourism, technology, and clean energy industries. China is Chile's largest export market, and many of China's largest corporations have already expanded business to Chile, including China Minmetals Corporation, Sinotech, and COFCO. Ties between China and Latin America have become increasingly close. Chinese leaders toured Latin America and the Caribbean earlier this month in a highly publicized trip to deepen China's relations with the region.
E. J. McKay was selected by the Government of Chile based on its China-Latin America experience, its strong network of relationships, and its track record working with governments around the world.
Regarding the firm's selection by the Chilean government, E. J. McKay CEO James Z. Li commented, "We are honored to represent Chile in this important initiative and look forward to continuing to build the ties between China and Latin America."
