About This Report


BMI View: We view Chile as one of the most attractive markets in the region both for water infrastructure companies and, following the announcement of the potential sale of a key water utility, for water service companies. However, we highlight that risks remain for industrial consumers, who will continue to face high costs for the construction of water supply and treatment facilities. ...This could inhibit the mining sector, but should aid the provision of water for domestic users and small farmers.

Water pollution is a problem in many areas, particularly industrial water pollution.
