LIMA, March 18 (Reuters) - Peru's central bank president said on Friday that the annual inflation rate should slow back into its 1-3 percent target range by the end of this year.

Julio Velarde added that he expected the rate, which eased to 4.47 percent in February, to reach its goal of 2 percent next year.
