President Piņera said once again that he expects Chile to grow 6% in 2011Published:
December 10, 2010A 6% growth or more is expected for the country's economy the next year, as well as the creation of 200,000 jobs by the year 2011.
"This year the country accomplished a very strong recovery (...) that began with a negative growth last year and continue with a positive this year, with a strong creation of jobs", said Piņera to foreign media in the presidential palace.
The positive performance of the economy would be reflected in the creation of 200,000 new jobs next year, in the middle of a vigorous performance of the internal demand, that should reduce its expansion in the next months due to the effects of the gradual raises in the key rate of the economy.
"We have set out very greedy objectives. To be, maybe, the first Latin American country that defeats the underdevelopment and poverty and to do so, we require a faster growth, in a more steady and sustained manner from what we have been doing so far", he added.
This year we have created more than 300,000 jobs, in the middle of the reconstruction process after the devastating effects of the earthquake and tsunami that the country experienced last February.
