- Chilean equities fell in June after data indicated that growth in retail sales and manufacturing
output continued to slow in May.
- The central bank cut its forecast for economic growth for 2014, citing muted investment. The
weaker peso pushed inflation up to 4.7% in May.
- In Fund-related corporate news, real-estate developer Parque Arauco plans to invest up to US$700
