ASUNCION Oct 6 (Reuters) - Paraguay's central bank on Tuesday cut its estimate for the country's economic growth this year to 3.7 percent from a previous forecast of 4.0 percent due to worsening external conditions.

The central bank said a slowdown in key trading partners and neighbors Argentina and Brazil was impacting Paraguayan exports. (Reporting by Daniela Desantis; Writing by Sarah Marsh)
