Chile has been one of the richest Latin American countries since nineteenth century. Gifted with enormous amount of Natural Resources (NNRR), its growth is linked to the exploitation of these resources and exports related to the primary economic sector, however, besides to this lack of diversification, industrial sector has played a relevant role in this country and its development is crucial to understand the Chilean convergence and divergence stages trough history. In this chapter, we analyse the interdependence among NNRR exploitation and Industrial growth and how this link has shaped Chilean economic development since 1870.
