BUENOS AIRES, June 27 (Reuters) - Argentina posted a primary
budget surplus of 1.45 billion pesos ($270 million) in April
, up about 37 percent from 1.06 billion pesos a year
earlier, the government said on Thursday.
    The primary budget balance shows government finances before
debts are paid. Argentina has been virtually shut out of global
credit markets since a 2002 default, and it uses the central
bank's international reserves to repay private creditors.
