Current account in 2016
07-04-2017 | STATEC

The first provisional results of Luxembourg's current account show a surplus of 2.6 billion euros. External transactions in goods and services left a surplus of 17.4 billion euros in 2016 (17.7 billion in 2015). Small changes in opposite directions (lower exports versus higher imports) have the net contribution of financial services to the current account balance decrease from 14.3 billion euros in 2015 to 14 billion in 2016. Due to restructuring and gradual departures, the external activity of e-commerce companies is dropping.
