Chile manufacturing output unexpectedly falls in December
SANTIAGO Jan 30 (Reuters) - Chilean manufacturing production fell a seasonally adjusted 2.5 percent in December from November and also posted a surprise 2.5 percent fall from a year earlier, the government said on Wednesday.
A high base of comparison and one fewer working day hit the indicator, the INE statistics agency said.
A Reuters poll saw the index, which is broadly comparable to the prior industrial output index, growing 0.9 percent from a year earlier boosted by food and beverages production.
