Chile economic activity rises 1.7 pct in April, below forecasts
SANTIAGO, June 5 (Reuters) - Chile's economic activity rose 1.7 percent in April from the same month a year ago, due to greater added value in services, the central bank said on Friday. The IMACEC economic activity index, encompassing about 90 percent of the economy tallied in gross domestic product figures, came in below forecasts for a 2.2 percent rise. In comparison with March, economic activity remained unchanged in seasonally adjusted terms.
