LIMA, March 19 (Reuters) - Peru's economy in February and March will "definitely" grow at a pace faster than January's 4.23 percent year-on-year expansion, Central Bank President Julio Velarde said on Wednesday.

Velarde said the monetary authority had expected stronger growth in January, when he said weaker output from a large mine stung the Andean country's economic activity. (Reporting By Teresa Cespedes, Writing by Mitra Taj)
