MEXICO CITY Dec 18 (Reuters) - Mexico's economy will "very likely" grow above 3 percent next year, helped by more robust expansion in top trading partner the United States, Mexican central bank governor Agustin Carstens told local radio on Friday.

In its quarterly inflation report released last month, the central bank forecast growth of 2.5 to 3.5 percent next year, above the 1.9 to 2.4 percent pace it eyes for Latin America's second largest economy in 2015. (Reporting by Jean Luis Arce; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
