LIMA, June 17 (Reuters) - Peru's central bank forecast quickening growth through 2017, when it expects the economy to expand 4.6 percent, but it forecast a slowdown to 4.2 percent in 2018, according to the bank's quarterly inflation report on Friday.
The bank also widened its view of the budget deficit to 3 percent of gross domestic product for this year and 2.8 percent next year, largely in line with targets announced by the incoming government of president-elect Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.
