Mexico cuts 2019 growth forecast after narrowly avoiding recession

Mexico's finance ministry cut its 2019 domestic GDP growth estimate to 1.1% from 2% following weak growth figures for the second quarter, Reuters reported.

The new forecast comes after preliminary data showed Latin America's second-largest economy growing 0.1% in real terms in the second quarter from the prior three months. The second-quarter figure followed economic contraction of 0.2% in the first quarter.
