Chile oil exports soaring

Mmmm oil. (my translation)

A decade ago Chile exported just 9 tons of olive oil a year. Today, by contrast, domestic producers send about 6,650 tons overseas, for more than US$24 million. Growth of more than 1,000% in just 10 years.

Yes, that should be “more than 70,000%” if they really want to toot their own horn, but whatever. Can’t expect them to be able to both produce oil and do basic math.
