Chile: opinion on the economic sectors most affected by COVID-19

In a survey conducted in Chile at the end of March 2020, nine out of ten company executives thought that the tourism and hospitality sector would be one of the most affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In turn, respondents' answers showed that the public sector, along with telecommunications and technology, would be likely spared from this crisis' negative effects.

According to the same survey, over two thirds of Chilean respondents expected the country's GDP to fall in 2020.
