estimate for 2014)
    MEXICO CITY, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Analysts raised growth
estimates for this year for the first time in nearly a year
after a recent pick-up in the economy but analysts trimmed their
growth estimates for next year, a Mexican central bank poll
showed on Monday.
    Analysts also raised their inflation estimates for this year
and next. 
    The central bank, which targets inflation of 3 percent with
a one percentage point tolerance zone on each side, cut interest
rates to a record low of 3.50 percent in October.
