The general manager of Huawei in Chile, Dou Yong, considers that Chile has great potential to become the region’s technological hub. For this reason, the company plans to make its largest regional investment in the country, building a data center that, in a first stage, will cost US$100 million, a figure that could eventually increase.

The company had evaluated Argentina and Brazil as alternatives. The decision will be made official in July.

“Chile is the region’s most developed country and it is very open. The business environment and the physical conditions for the data center’s construction are both good. We have compared it with neighboring countries, in fact with all other South American countries. Based on our evolution, Chile is the best in all the region. So, that is one reason why we chose it. Right now, I think we are in the final stage; at the beginning of July, it will become official,” said Dou Yong.
