Chile: impact of COVID-19 on the trade sector in Santiago, by type 2020

According to a survey carried out in March 2020, the main problem faced by commerce businesses in the Santiago Metropolitan Region during the COVID-19 pandemic was the decrease in demand and sales. Up to 83 percent of the retailers and 79 percent of the wholesalers surveyed in the Chilean capital reported to be facing low demand and sales. The second biggest problem for retail businesses in Santiago was the closure of sales branches, with 65 percent of respondents. On the other hand, more than half of the wholesale companies who participated in the survey had problems importing goods and maintaining their supply inventory.
