I thought I may have read that wrong and it must be 2.3 million, but then I thought that doesn't sound enough, (stupid countries that use commas and points in ways that I am not used to ).
Here's the quote
Además, Valente consignó que en la zona hay 42 proyectos de inversión que suman cerca de US$2.300 millones. De dicho total, 18 están en proceso de aprobación y 24 ya se encuentran con todos sus trámites completos, contó.
I'm confused now is that 2 thousand 3 hundred milliones they are saying which is 2.3 billion otherwise why do they take it to three decimal places if they are calling it 2.3 million wouldn't they just say 2.3 milliones de dolares? Yeah 2.3 billion is a lot of money but If there are big infrastructure projects in there too, it is not out of this world I guess, considering the bridge to Chiloe is going to go near 1 billion USD. Hmm I am not sure now, as I say 2.3 million sounds peanuts but 2.3 billion sounds excessive, maybe not if it's over say 10 years it's not, would have to look for more details. I'll go with 2.3 billion if not for the wow factor that they maybe able to make some positive changes there, 2.3 miiion wouldn't even buy the government delegation with the indigineous community a year's worth of lunches probably for all their meetings

In the Lakes Region Chile for 6 years. It looks like New Zealand in some ways, and is nearly at the bottom of the world too, but there the similarities end.
