    SANTIAGO, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Chile registered a trade deficit
of $19 million in September, amid a persistent decline in the
value of copper shipments, its principal export, the central
bank said on Monday.
    The figures represented the second deficit in the country´s
trade balance this year, after a $29 million deficit in July. 
    Copper exports totaled $2.763 billion in September, the bank
said, a 4.2% decrease year on year. 
    Total exports reached $5.205 billion for a year-on-year
decrease of 6.1%, while imports decreased 6.2% to $5.224
billion.
