The Chile Retail Report examines the long-term potential of the local consumer market, but flags short-term concerns about the impact on Chile's economic outlook of high labour costs, a moderation in external demand and a fiscally conservative government.

The report examines how best to maximise returns in the Chilean retail market while minimising investment risk, and also explores the impact of slowing Chinese growth and the prospect of a serious economic shock in the eurozone or slowdown in US economic activity on the Chilean consumer and on the ability of producers and exporters to realise returns in the short term.
