    In a report released Tuesday by the regional agency in Santiago de Chile, ECLAC points out that these figures can be explained “by the sustained economic growth of the region, high commodity prices and high investment returns associated with exploitation of natural resources. ”

    Moreover, ECLAC expected FDI in the region in 2013 will be at a range of between a fall of 3% and an increase of 7%.
