Key Market Issues
According to CPL, 10% of all export revenues from the state-owned copper company Codelco were automatically transferred each year to the military, for the purpose of purchasing weapons and equipment. During 2006-2009, US$4.2 billion were transferred to the military under the CPL. After the 2010 earthquake, funding from CPL to the military was opposed by the public due to lack of funds for recovery and development funds. According to the new law, the funding from CPL would be transferred to Economic and Social Stabilization Fund (ESSF) for better use by government departments.
The defense imports declined from US$696 million in 2007 to US$323 million in 2011. During the review period, funds from CRL were used to make the procurements of weapons and equipments.
