PREVIEW-Mexico Feb economic activity seen up 3.6 pct yr/yr

WHAT: Mexico economic activity during February

WHEN: Tuesday, April 27 at 9:00 a.m. (1400 GMT)

REUTERS FORECAST: Median +3.6 percent y/y Feb vs +2.36 pct
y/y Jan. Fifteen economists participated in the survey and the
range was +2.1 and +4.6 pct.

FACTORS TO WATCH: Mexico’s economy likely grew in February
at its fastest annual rate in almost two years, but investors
will be keen to see if the country’s factory-led recovery is
spilling over into the service sector.

An increase in exports like cars and televisions has
pulled Mexico out of recession after the economy shrank 6.5
percent last year. The country will likely only partially
recover this year, posting growth of around 4 percent as
private consumption stays muted.
