Chile manufacturing up 0.8 pct y/y in December

    SANTIAGO, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Chilean manufacturing
production rose 0.8 percent in December compared to
the previous year, government data showed on Thursday.
    The increase was driven by a jump in the production of heavy
machinery compared to the same period the previous year.
However, this was counterbalanced by a sharp decline in
automobile and trailer production, the government statistics
agency INE said.
    Mining production in December nudged upwards 1.3 percent
from a year earlier, boosted by an increase in the production of
lithium carbonate, but offset by a downturn in the production of
iron.
