Chile's GDP expanded at a slower rate in October than in the previous two months as mining production dropped. Year-on-year growth was 4.9%, compared with 5.4% in September. Analysts say it is likely that with a fall in consumer prices last month, the central bank will not raise interest rates in December. This would be the first time since July that rates remained unchanged.
