South Korea had a current account surplus of $7.82 billion in March, the Bank of Korea said in Friday’s preliminary reading.
That was down from the downwardly revised $7.94 billion surplus in February (originally $8.03 billion).
The goods account surplus increased to $7.92 billion, compared to the $6.96 billion figure in March 2020. The services account deficit fell to $0.9 billion, from $1.65 billion in March last year, owing to an improvement in the transport account.
For the first quarter of 2021, the current account surplus was $22.82 billion – up from $12.93 billion in the first quarter of last year.
