Chile central bank holds benchmark interest rate steady at 2.5 pct

SANTIAGO, Feb 1 (Reuters) - Chile’s central bank voted unanimously to keep its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 2.5 percent at its monthly policy meeting on Thursday, in line with market expectations.

The bank said it would leave open the possibility for increased stimulus should inflation lag behind its target rate. (Reporting by Dave Sherwood; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)
