Google to open first Latin American data center in Chile

Search giant Google has decided to base its first Latin American data center in Chile, near the capital Santiago.

The computer server base is expected to cost $150m (£94m) and will employ up to 20 people, said the firm.

Google said it chose Chile because of its reliable infrastructure and skilled workforce.

The country has been trying to become a tech hub, with initiatives such as Start-Up Chile attracting entrepreneurs from around the world.
