Mexican GDP grows 0.1% in second quarter, slightly above forecast

MEXICO CITY, July 31 (Reuters) - Mexico's gross domestic product grew 0.1% in the second quarter versus the previous three-month period in seasonally adjusted terms, preliminary data from the national statistics agency INEGI showed on Wednesday.

The result was slightly better than a Reuters poll of analysts, which had forecast growth to be flat on the quarter in Latin America's second largest economy.

In unadjusted terms, Mexico's economy shrank 0.7% in the second quarter versus the year earlier period, the data showed. (Reporting by Anthony Esposito Editing by Dave Graham)
