Buyers in Chile are looking to Georgia for the latest in specialized medical equipment for the defense, as well as food items considered here to be mundane. 

That’s according to trade leads cited in the most recent newsletter of the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Trade Division.  

The state operates an office in Chile that sources leads for Georgia products and helps Georgia companies find and qualify distributors and partners in the country.  

According to the Santiago office, a Chilean company has requested EVACAM stretchers and related equipment including ventilators, defibrillators, pumps, oxygen cylinders and more. 

On the agricultural side, requests have come in for Georgia honey, nuts, chocolate, snack foods, condiments and other packaged items.  

The inquiries come less than two weeks after Global Atlanta hosted a virtual discussion with German Rocca, the trade commissioner of Chile in Miami, who is aiming to deepen ties with Georgia.  

Veronica Medina, Georgia’s trade representative in Chile, outlined her services and opportunities in the Chilean market during the call.
