In December 2011, the deficit on the current account balance (CAB) of the country’s balance of payments grew month on month by LTL 238.4 million or 68 %. This change in the CAB was the result of an increase in the income balance deficit and the deficit on the current transfers balance (it happened for the first time). A positive figure (LTL 499.1 million) on the balance of the financial account on the balance of payments in December 2011 has formed as a result of net inflows of the portfolio investment and foreign direct investments (FDI) to Lithuania.

The above data was released by the Statistics Department of the Bank of Lithuania.
