Lower surplus on the balance of current transfers and higher deficits on income balance and foreign trade balance led to an increase of LTL 726 million in the current account balance (CAB) deficit of the country’s balance of payments for Q2 2011. Because of net foreign direct investment inflow the financial account balance for Q2 turned out positive to make up LTL 553.4 million.
