Belgium Current Account  1995-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

Belgium posted a current account gap of EUR 2388 million in the second quarter of 2018, swinging from an upwardly revised EUR 1134 million surplus in the corresponding period of the previous year. It was the largest deficit since the third quarter of 2016, as the services account shifted to a EUR 985 million shortfall from a EUR 1481 million surplus a year earlier, as imports of maintenance & repair, travel and other business services exceeded exports. Additionally, the primary income also switched to a EUR 529 million gap from a EUR 907 million surplus in Q2 2017 – mainly due to a negative balance of investment income - and the secondary income gap widened to EUR 1911 million from EUR 1735 million. Contrarily, the goods surplus increased sharply to EUR 1036 million from EUR 481 million a year earlier. Current Account in Belgium averaged 1227.26 EUR Million from 1995 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 7732 EUR Million in the second quarter of 2010 and a record low of -6687 EUR Million in the third quarter of 2008.
