The increase in the current account deficit was caused mainly by a drop in the trade balance surplus and partly by an increase in the deficit of the balance for services, the SITA newswire wrote. By contrast, the lower deficit of the balance of receipts and of the balance of current transfers had a positive influence on the development of the overall balance.
