LIMA, June 15 (Reuters) - Peru’s central bank raised its view for 2019 economic growth to 4.2 percent from 4 percent in its last estimate in March, citing strengthening domestic demand, investments and business confidence, according to its quarterly inflation report on Friday.

The central bank also trimmed its view for this year’s fiscal deficit, to 3.1 percent of gross domestic product from 3.5 percent previously. It maintained its view for a 4 percent economic expansion this year.
