LIMA Nov 6 (Reuters) - Peru's finance minister Alonso Segura said on Thursday that the global minerals exporter's economy could grow by less than 3 percent this year, below his previous view for an expansion of more than 3 percent.

Last year, Peru's economy grew by 5.8 percent.

Segura said he is still optimistic that the economy will rebound to expand by 6 percent next year. (Reporting By Mitra Taj; Editing by Diane Craft)
