This article assesses the relationship between Brazil and Chile, focusing on the fields of economic and security cooperation from Chile's perspective. Chile plays a number of different roles, the most salient of which is ‘global trader’. This role stretches beyond Brazil's expectations, but it converges with the social demands of Mexico and the United States as well as with the cues of the global market. Such a salient role – alongside that of mediator, bridge builder, and partner of Argentina in security cooperation issues – influences Chile's patterns of cooperation with and distance from Brazil as the regional power in South America.
