South Africa's current account deficit widened to ZAR 176 billion, or 4.1 percent of GDP, in the third quarter of 2016 from a downwardly revised ZAR 123 billion, or 2.9 percent of GDP, in the previous period, mainly due to weaker global demand for the country's goods.

Also, the services deficit rose to ZAR 21 billion from ZAR 6 billion; while the income gap shrank to ZAR 129 billion from ZAR 139 billion. In the first three quarters of the year, the current account deficit rose to ZAR 520 billion from ZAR 506 billion the same period of 2015.
