Chile grew at 4.0% in 2018 as investment rebounded

Chile's economy grew 3.6% year over year in the fourth quarter of 2018, bringing GDP expansion for the year to 4.0%, according to figures released March 18 by the Banco Central de Chile.

Copper mining, personal services and commerce were the sectors that weighed the most on overall growth. Mining, business services and construction reverted their negative trends from the previous year.

Supported by a strong 4.7% increase in investment, overall internal demand also grew by 4.7% in the year, contributing positively to GDP growth, despite a 2.6% contraction in net exports.

According to the Diario Financiero, the positive performance in investments reverted four years of negative results since 2013, when investments last expanded by 3.3%.

The Chilean economy gathered pace in 2018 from the two previous years, when GDP growth came in at 1.3% and 1.7% in 2017 and 2016, respectively.
