Chile Leading Economic Index  2009-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Chile's IMACEC economic activity advanced 4 percent year-on-year in February of 2018, following a downwardly revised 3.5 percent rise in January but missing market expectations of a 4.5 percent growth. It was the fastest expansion in economic activity since February of 2016, mostly underpinned by mining activities which surged 19.4 percent, the biggest gain ever and far above a 7.9 percent increase in January. Meantime, non-mining activities rose but slightly less (2.8 percent compared to 3.1 percent), driven by retail trade and services. On a seasonally adjusted monthly basis, economic activity went up 0.9 percent, the highest increase since July, after a revised flat reading in January.
