Coronavirus hits Chile’s copper exports

Bnamericas - Chile’s copper exports dropped 2.2% in February compared with the previous month, the central bank reported on Monday.

On Friday, Chile's copper commission Cochilco predicted weak demand during 2020 but also lower production. China's car industry is a huge copper consumer and last week the country's automobile association predicted a 10% reduction in sales for this half.

According to export promotion agency ProChile, exports to China make up 33% of the total and copper accounts for 48%.

A report from the customs service cited a 10.5% drop in Chile’s exports during the first two months of the year in comparison with 2019. Imports of mining and construction equipment fell 14.3%.
