Chile posts May trade surplus of $679 mln

    SANTIAGO, June 7 (Reuters) - Chile posted a trade surplus
 of $679 million in May, as copper exports by the
world's top producer of the red metal continued strong, central
bank data showed on Thursday. 
    Copper exports jumped 22 percent over the same month in
2017, boosted by a strong copper price and a low basis for
comparison last year.  
    Chile is the world's top copper producer.
