Project Description

U.S. Embassy Santiago leads U.S. efforts on the ground to promote deeper economic ties between the United States and Chile. Chile is one of the most dynamic economies of Latin America, regularly cited as a regional model of governance and sound economic policies. Chile has greatly increased its global role and developed strong economic ties with other countries, especially in Asia.

Embassy Santiago seeks a virtual student intern to assist with bilateral diplomatic initiatives and track key developments in Chile’s most important economic sectors. The virtual intern will help to assess the economic impact of developments in Chile and key global trends on the country’s most import sectors: mining, energy, and trade. The virtual student intern will also track the macroeconomic effects of the government’s policy decisions and initiatives championed by the Chilean National Congress such as on tax, labor, and pension reforms. A key aspect of the project will be assessing Chile’s efforts to strengthen international economic ties, especially with East Asian countries such as South Korea, Japan, and China. The intern will utilize all available media, including Spanish language newspapers, Chilean government websites, private sector websites, universities and other sources of relevant information.

Embassy Santiago’s economic team will develop the specific objectives and timelines with the virtual student intern.
