Argentina says economic activity grows 2 percent in March

BUENOS AIRES, May 26 (Reuters) - Argentine economic activity grew 2.0 percent in March compared with the same month last year, government data showed on Tuesday, beating market expectations.

Analysts polled by Reuters had expected a 0.8 percent rise in the monthly EMAE economic activity index, which is a close proxy for gross domestic product, in part due to a weak performance in the same month last year.

The government data, which is widely disputed, also showed economic activity fell 1.0 percent from the previous month. (Writing by Sarah Marsh; Editing by Richard Lough and Lisa Shumaker)
