Surplus on the current account continues to increase
Balance of Payments of the Republic of Lithuania August 2018
Today, the Bank of Lithuania published the balance of payments data for August 2018, which shows that the surplus on the current account balance amounted to €136.8 million and, compared to July, increased by 21.7%. Its build-up was driven by the positive secondary income balance and the smaller yet still positive balance of services, which were not offset by the negative foreign trade and primary income balances.
For more information on the country’s balance of payments for August 2018 is available in the statistical release (81.7 KB ) of the Bank of Lithuania. Comprehensive balance of payments data are also published on the Bank of Lithuania website.
