LIMA, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Peru raised its official growth forecast for this year to 4 percent, from 3.6 percent in April, but trimmed its view for growth next year to 4.2 percent, the finance ministry said in a biannual report published in the official gazette on Friday.

Peru also raised its view for the 2018 and 2019 trade surpluses and tightened its fiscal deficit targets as previously announced by the finance minister. (Reporting By Teresa Cespedes )
