Chile to reduce deficit by 0.2 percent per year- finance minister

SANTIAGO, June 6 (Reuters) - Chile will set a goal of reducing the country’s fiscal deficit by 0.2 percent of gross domestic product per year through 2022, finance minister Felipe Larrain said on Wednesday, as it moves to tame a larger than expected deficit inherited from its predecessor.

Larrain added that the government expected a fiscal deficit of 1.8 percent in 2018. (Reporting by Dave Sherwood)
