LIMA, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Peru's economy grew by a faster-than-expected 5.52 percent in August from a year ago on the back of surging copper output and recovering construction and manufacturing activity, the government said Friday.

A Reuters poll had forecast a 4.95 percent expansion in August. The official result marked the fastest monthly growth rate since February. (Reporting By Mitra Taj)
