Chile posts July trade surplus of $375 mln on strong copper exports

    SANTIAGO, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Chile posted a trade surplus
 of $375 million in July, as copper exports
continued to show strength, central bank data showed on Tuesday.
 
    Copper exports jumped 9.47 percent over the same month in
2017 due to a jump in production at the country's largest copper
mines.
    Chile is the world's top copper producer.
