Chile posts April trade surplus of $983 mln

    SANTIAGO, May 7 (Reuters) - Chile posted a trade surplus
 of $983 million in April, as copper exports by the
world's top producer of the red metal continued to be strong,
central bank data showed on Monday. 
    Copper exports increased by 32.5 percent over the same month
last year, boosted by a strong copper price and a low basis for
comparison last year.  
    Chile is the world's top copper producer.
