Rapa Nui[edit]

A special territory of Chile that was annexed in 1888, Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai (play /ˈmoʊ.aɪ/), created by the early Rapanui people. It is a World Heritage Site (as determined by UNESCO) with much of the island protected within Rapa Nui National Park. In recent times the island has served as a cautionary tale about the cultural and environmental dangers of overexploitation. Ethnographers and archaeologists also blame diseases carried by European colonizers and slave raiding[4] of the 1860s for devastating the local peoples.

Easter Island is claimed to be "the most remote inhabited island in the world"

Easter Island shares with Juan Fernández Islands the sui generis constitutional status of "special territory" of Chile, granted in 2007. As of that time a special charter for the island was under discussion: therefore it continued to be considered a province of the Valparaíso Region and containing a single commune (comuna). This is unique in Chile, since all other provinces consist of more than one commune. Both the province and the commune are called Isla de Pascua and encompass the whole island and its surrounding islets and rocks, plus Isla Salas y Gómez, some 380 km (236 mi) to the east.

Note - The Chile Article does not have any live links to the Easter Island article. If a section to Chile is not added for Easter Island then at least the references should be made as active links to the Wiki article.

Edit Request: Update on Free Trade Agreements[edit]

I am preparing a case study on Chile and the Free Trade Agreements of Chile look like out-dated.

For example, in 2011, there is a new Free Trade Agreement between the Republic of Turkey and the Republic of Chile which was signed on 14 July 2009 in Santiago and entered into force on 1 March 2011.

Ethnic Composition of Chile[edit]

Article has been restated on the ethnic composition of chile, since the current edition lacks neutrality, by the mention of a single study, when this quite accepted the difficulty of reliable and definitive figures confirm.

For these reasons we have integrated the various studies on the subject and has given greater visibility to the fact the difficulty in finding figures on the subject.

Please, before reversing this edition, discuss your arguments this space, especially the user inhakito, that arbitrarily reversed editions constantly causing serious damage to the item that many users try to improve. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alex12345yuri (talkcontribs) 22:10, 31 October 2013‎ (UTC)

Currency[edit]

The currency of Chile is pesos. 1 peso is about 0.00 USD. The closest you can get to 1$ is 1212 pesos and that is 1.76$. 74.101.143.59 (talk) 20:43, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Unreliable source on section 5.3, "National symbols"[edit]

On revision 17:20, 28 August 2016‎ of this article, on the section "National symbols" it is stated: "However, like the Texan flag, the flag of Chile is modeled after the Flag of the United States." The source provided for said statement is "http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/flags/countrys/samerica/chile.htm". I believe this source is unreliable. Joqmos (talk) 17:24, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
