Ingrid Antonijevic

Ingrid Antonijevic Hahn (born 1951) is a Chilean economist, entrepreneur, academic and former Minister of Economy, Development and Reconstruction (2006) for only two months, in the first cabinet of socialist president Michelle Bachelet. In her youth, she was a militant in the MAPU organisation, and after the end of the Pinochet regime she was one of the founders of the Party for Democracy (Partido Por la Democracia a.k.a PPD) that has led the transition towards democracy in Chile. She is a progressive entrepreneur who promotes corporate social responsibility and the involvement of the private sector in projects initiated by the government that aim to benefit the whole country. She has acquired notoriety in her country for holding positions in organisations that have traditionally been held by men.

Antonijevic was born in the northern Chilean port city of Iquique in the Tarapaca Region to a politically right-wing upper middle class family. She is the youngest daughter of Croatian immigrant and entrepreneur, Leandro Antonijevic Bezmalinovic, and Ingeborg Hahn Von Neumann from Germany.

Antonijevic was interested in meditation for many years before she became a devotee of zen meditation after a holiday in Japan, where she became a student of zen Buddhist priest Gudo Wafu Nishijima. She lives and works in Santiago, Chile and promotes zen meditation among her employees in the workplace. She has two elder sisters, Nadja and Ilona, two children, Felipe and Carolina Saint Jean, and two grandchildren.
