The goods surplus rose by USD 5.89 billion to USD 22.90 billion, underpinned by a global economic pickup and strong demand for semiconductors. Also, the services deficit narrowed by USD 0.12 billion to USD 3.65 billion, due to higher proceeds from freight services. Meanwhile, the primary income account surplus decreased by USD 1.38 billion to USD 2.53 billion, mainly owing to increased payments for non-residents' equity dividend income. The secondary income deficit widened by USD 0.35 billion to USD 1.27 billion, mainly due to an increase in gift transfers to non-residents. Current Account in Taiwan averaged 5600.82 USD Million from 1981 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 21557 USD Million in the first quarter of 2015 and a record low of -851 USD Million in the first quarter of 1981.
