Netherlands Current Account  1982-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

Dutch current account surplus widened to EUR 15.42 billion in Q2 2017 from EUR 12.84 billion in Q2 2016, as the goods surplus increased to EUR 21.15 billion from EUR 19.57 billion. The values of both imports and exports rose by almost 10%, whereas volume growth in exports outstripped that of imports. Higher income from tourism also contributed to the rise in trade surplus. Meanwhile, the primary income deficit decreased to EUR 3.14 billion from EUR 3.48 billion. The negative external income balance can be explained mainly by the large dividend distributions made by Dutch listed companies. The secondary income gap narrowed to EUR 1.35 billion from EUR 1.49 billion. On the other hand, the service deficit rose to EUR 1.25 billion from EUR 1.77 billion a year earlier. Current Account in Netherlands averaged 6514.05 EUR Million from 1982 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 21312 EUR Million in the first quarter of 2017 and a record low of -2389.10 EUR Million in the third quarter of 2000.
