Peru economy grew 3.9 pct in 2016, 3.25 pct in Dec vs year earlier

LIMA, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Peru's economy expanded by a stronger-than-expected pace of 3.25 percent in December from the same month a year earlier and by 3.90 percent in all of 2016, thanks to a hefty surge in copper production that offset tepid domestic demand, official data showed Wednesday.

A Reuters poll had forecast a 2.8 percent economic expansion in the last month of the year and 3.8 percent growth in 2016. (Reporting By Teresa Cespedes, Writing by Mitra taj, Editing by W Simon)
