The surplus balance of services in September 2013 and a month-on-month increase in the balance of current transfers could not offset the deficit trade and income balances, which led to the build-up of an LTL 25.9 million deficit in the current account balance (CAB) in the reference period. The negative value (LTL –196.1 million) of the balance of payments financial account balance in September 2013 resulted from an outflow of net portfolio and other investment.

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