Current account deficit surprises economists


Poland had a current account deficit of €724m in May as against a surplus of €647m in April, the National Bank of Poland (NBP) has announced. After the exceptionally good results in April, the majority of analysts had expected to see a small surplus in the following month, too. The high deficit on the current account in May was due, among other things, to dividend payments owing to foreign direct investors as a result of their capital contributions to Polish entities. The country's balance of trade was also negative - the deficit in trade in goods stood at €386m, with a surplus of €107m noted a month earlier. In May, exports in euro terms increased by 9.9% y-o-y to stand at €5.9bn, while imports increased by 11.9% y-o-y to €6.3bn.
