Chile central bank keeps benchmark interest rate unchanged at 0.5 pct

SANTIAGO, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Chile’s central bank kept its benchmark interest rate steady at 0.5% on Thursday, in line with expectations, as the country maintains its efforts to revive the economy following the coronavirus pandemic.

A central bank poll of traders last week predicted Chile’s rate, its lowest in a decade, would remain unchanged for the next year at least.
