During the first quarter of 2021, China remained the main buyer with a 40.9% share of total Chilean exports. Exports from the mining sector represented 74.4% of total shipments to the country, at $6,381 million and an increase of 57.6% over the same period last year. Non-mining exports accounted for 25.6% of shipments to China, totaling $2,191 million. Fruit and nuts exports accounted for 64.7%, registering an increase of 24.0% and totaling $1,418 million. This increase is largely explained by the 38.1% increase recorded by cherries, compared to March 2020.
