MEXICO CITY, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Analysts raised their
expectations for inflation and lowered their growth estimates
for Mexico this year, a Mexican central bank survey showed on
Tuesday.
    The central bank, which targets inflation of 3 percent with
a one percentage point tolerance zone each side, cut interest
rates to a record low of 3 percent in June to underpin growth in
Latin America's second biggest economy.
