Re: Formulario 10 for Visa - Can it be done online?

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Obviously there’s no magic money tree, but given how much politicians earn in Chile, and how much assets they have, the amount of money the government seem to be able to throw at certain things when they want to (the costanera in Valdivia for example). I’m just saying there’s more money that could h...

Let’s get Piñera to stick his hands in his pockets. He’s worth almost $3 billion.

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Didn’t they vote against the project because originally there was going to be an immediate 50% cut, but those terms were removed. At least that’s what I got from the article.
