Chile cenbank head says August, September growth likely less than July

SANTIAGO, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Chilean central bank head Mario Marcel told Congress on Wednesday that August and September economic growth figures are likely to be worse than those reported in July.

Chilean economic activity rose 2.8 percent in July from the same month a year ago, due to growth in a broad range of sectors, including services and manufacturing. The August figures are likely to suffer from a high base of comparison, Marcel said. (Reporting by Gram Slattery; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
