Chile says economy grows 2.8 pct in Q3

SANTIAGO, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Chile’s gross domestic product grew 2.8 percent in the third quarter of 2018 compared with a year earlier amid a slowdown in the mining sector, the central bank said on Monday.

The growth represented a slowdown from the previous quarter in which the equivalent figure was 5.4 percent.

The bank attributed the slower rate to three fewer business days and a sluggish mining sector despite continued robust activity in all other sectors.
