Greece posted a current account surplus of EUR 0.538 billion in July of 2021, compared to EUR 0.797 billion deficit in the corresponding month of the previous year, mainly due to an improvement in the service balance (EUR 2.46 billion from EUR 0.89 billion in July 2020), as tourism revenues jumped to EUR 2.275 billion from EUR 0.6780 billion in July last year when global restrictions to stem the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic took a heavy toll on travel. Both primary (EUR -0.36 billion from EUR -0.55 billion) and secondary income accounts (EUR 0.67 billion from EUR 0.45 billion) also improved which was partly offset by a deterioration in the balance of goods. Meanwhile, the goods deficit increased to EUR 2.23 billion from EUR 1.59 billion in the same month last year. Considering January-July, the current account deficit dropped to EUR 6.96 billion from EUR 7.85 billion, due to an improvement in the balance of services and the primary income account. source: Bank of Greece
