Google to Invest $140 Million for Expansion in Chile
Edgardo Frias, Google’s general manager in Chile, announced this week that the search giant will be investing $140 million for the expansion of its data center and operations in the Latin American country.
Google already spent $150 million on its data center located in Quilicura, near Santiago, which is operated entirely on solar power.
Chilean president Sebastian Pinera, who delivered a speech at the Google announcement, promised to put the country at the forefront of “the current of history” in the technology revolution.
It is said that Chile’s recent support in a number of tech investments will help the country diversify from its dependence on copper.
