Increased surplus of the balance of services and current transfers and a decreased deficit of the balance of foreign trade resulted in a surplus of the current account balance (CAB) of Lithuania’s balance of payments recorded in May 2012. A negative value (LTL –250.4 million) of the financial account of the balance of payments in May 2012 was caused by substantially shrinking portfolio and other investment liabilities.

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