Chile's efforts to lead in these fundamental development issues have been demonstrated by The Longitudinal Study 2023, conducted by Fundación Imagen de Chile and Ipsos. Likewise, the quality of its exports, mainly known for its wine and fruit, is well perceived by the country's priority markets.

The latest Longitudinal Study 2023, conducted by Fundación Imagen de Chile and Ipsos, showed an improved perception of Chile and the region in the 12 priority markets analyzed: Sao Paulo, Toronto, New York, Washington, London, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Shanghai, Tokyo, New Delhi and Dubai.

Although all the countries analyzed showed improvements regarding their perception, Chile stands out in terms of innovation and scientific development. These axes have, in recent years, marked the development line promoted by the country, and are where some investments have been focused in recent years.

Chile stands out in the perception of "Scientific and astronomical development", with 46% choosing the country compared to Latin America, the highest percentage among the countries measured. It also leads, with 43%, in the "Development of sustainability and environmental protection".

"Chile's commitment to promoting innovation, science, sustainability and environmental protection translates into a country that looks to the future and seeks to be at the forefront of technological advances and climate urgency. The study confirms that we have great potential to be recognized for these aspects and must continue to develop this positioning," says Rossana Dresdner, executive director of the Fundación Imagen de Chile.

Since 2020, both familiarity and favorability have progressively increased for Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Colombia. With regards to its favorability, our country recorded its highest growth between 2020 and 2023, from 43% to 51%.
