BUENOS AIRES, Feb 24 (Reuters) - Argentina's trade surplus widened 108.6 percent in January from the same month a year earlier to $73 million, the government said on Tuesday, beating market expectations.

The median forecast in a Reuters poll of 10 analysts was for a surplus of $11 million, with estimates ranging widely from a deficit of $133 million to a surplus of $300 million.

President Cristina Fernandez's government relies on the surplus to boost dollar supplies on the tightly controlled currency market. (Reporting by Sarah Marsh; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
