SANTIAGO Dec 19 (Reuters) - Large flows of short-term capital are not flooding into Chile in the wake of the U.S. Federal Reserve's announcement of a fresh round of monetary stimulus, central bank president Rodrigo Vergara said on Wednesday.

Latin American policy-makers are worried stimulus measures in the developed world will trigger more capital flows that could further strengthen the commodities-dependent region's currencies, its finance ministers said on Friday.
