Country Brief - Chile 2016

One of the most prosperous, stable and internationally competitive states in South America, Chile has gained increasing regional and international visibility in recent years. As the young population begins to contract, boosting worker productivity and adult skills – which are still low by OECD standards – is a priority. As such, the government is undertaking sweeping reforms to return control of the highly privatised education sector to the public sphere and boost teaching quality through training and evaluation. While these reforms are slowly implemented, young Chileans continue to pursue higher education in increasing numbers, resulting in one of the best-educated populations in the region.
