The concentration around the core of country has reached a level that might be hurting the growth of the economy. However, there is not enough information that allow to make a definitive statement about it most peripheral regions: Magallanes and Arica, have productive structures significantly different from national one, which call for complementary specific policies for these regions, to get similar targets pursue by the national and spatially blind policy. The analysis of Input-Output matrices, their linkages and production levels, for Magallanes and Arica, shown that the productive structure of the peripheral regions belong to a less developed economy compared with the national one. This supports the idea that those policies based on the national economic structure do not have the expect impact on the peripheral regions. Therefore, there is a call for specific and complementary regional policy focus on these regions that complement the national macroeconomic policies.
