The Mexican peso should rise against the dollar after the central bank launched a surprise interest rate hike earlier this week, Finance Minister Luis Videgaray said on Friday.

"It is reasonable that (the peso) will strengthen in a gradual manner in the coming days and weeks," he told local radio, repeating comments from earlier. He declined to specify a particular level, saying the exchange rate should be determined by the market.
