Fastest-Growing Chile Imports 2015
Research Note: 
Import numbers rarely match the source exporters’ stats. Reasons for import-export statistical discrepancies include re-exports, time lags, misallocations, distinct trade reporting systems, different quantity measurements and country confidentiality rules. Also, transportation and insurance costs are sometimes added to import totals.
In 2015, Chile bought US$63 billion worth of imported products down by -15.6% since 2011 and down by -12.9% from 2014 to 2015.
