Chile: Interview with Gemines and Le Fort Economía y Finanzas


The 15–16 May constitutional convention election threw up a major surprise, with independent candidates winning a large share of the vote, and the right-wing coalition failing to obtain the one third of seats needed to form a blocking minority. Delegates now have a maximum of 12 months to draw up a new constitution, which could shift the country towards a profoundly different socioeconomic model. To examine the implications of the vote, and the outlook for Chile’s economy going forward, we spoke to Alejandro Fernández Beroš, chief economist at Gemines, Guillermo Le Fort Varela, CEO of Le Fort Economía y Finanzas, and Nathan Pincheira Guzman, chief economist at Fynsa.
