Central Bank of Chile

October 19, 2016

Chile’s monetary policy rate was left unchanged at 3.5%, its level since hikes of 25 basis points implemented in September and December of 2015. A released statement observes that inflation has recently fallen faster than anticipated and that interest rates elsewhere are low. Growth was sluggish last quarter in Chilean output and demand, and the labor market is adjusting only slowly.
