BUENOS AIRES Aug 21 (Reuters) - Argentina's economic activity grew 3.8 percent in June compared with the same month a year earlier, government data showed on Friday, far quicker than economists had expected.

Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast a median increase of 2.5 percent in the monthly EMAE economic activity index, which is a close proxy for gross domestic product. (Reporting by Buenos Aires newsroom; Writing by Richard Lough; Editing by Meredith Mazzilli)
