Dear Exporter,

Canadian Export Development Inc., in cooperation with the Canadian Embassy in Chile and Export Development Canada, invites you to participate in the Canadian Pavilion at ExpoCorma, November 4-6, 2020, Concepcion, Chile. 

ExpoCorma, organized by Corma (, is Chile's largest forest industry trade association, enjoying the full support of the Chilean forest industry. This event is viewed as the industry’s prime opportunity to acquaint themselves with their clients' products and latest technologies available so as to meet their growing needs.  ExpoCorma 2020 is Chile’s largest and most innovative forest and pulp and paper industry event.


The Chilean forestry industry remains the second most important sector of the Chilean economy after mining. It has shown strong signs of recuperation, growing its worldwide forest products exports by 24% during 2018 and reaching the record figure of US$ 6,8 billion . The short and medium term outlook for the industry is optimistic as the major Chilean forestry companies (Arauco and CMPC) continue to materialize their projected investments into the rest of South America, particularly Brazil and Uruguay, and including Chile of course (i.e. Arauco’s US$ 2.4 billion MAPA project). Opportunities for Canadian suppliers exist in all facets of the forest industry including: forest operations - harvesting machinery (skidders, harvesters and attachments) and services (forest fire protection services, remote sensing, GIS mapping, engineering, environmental and forest inventory management); wood processing - sawmill and value-added equipment (conveyors, debarkers, chippers, grinders, lumber edgers); and pulp & paper processing equipment (process flow monitoring systems, energy optimization assessment) and biotechnology (biomass and biofuels). 


In the context of ExpoCorma, the Canadian Embassy in Santiago in conjunction with Export Development Corporation (EDC) is inviting Canadian manufacturers of forest harvesting and wood processing equipment, as well as pulp and paper related equipment and services, to participate in their Business Development Program during the week of ExpoCorma 2020. These activities will be defined based on the level of interest expressed by Canadian firms and budget availability.
