Taiwan Current Account  1981-2016 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

Taiwanese current account surplus fell to $17.1 billion in the third quarter of 2016 compared to a $18.3 billion surplus a year earlier. The goods surplus narrowed by $0.74 billion to $17.70 billion as exports (-5.82 percent) fell at a faster pace than imports (-5.08 percent). The services deficit widened by $0.55 billion to $3.70 billion, mainly because of a fall in travel receipts and an increase in payments for air passenger transportation. The secondary income deficit widened by $0.12 billion to $0.92 billion, owing to an increase in workers' outward remittances. In contrast, the primary income surplus rose by $0.22 billion to $4.01 billion, mainly reflecting the increase in interest income from bond investment abroad. Current Account in Taiwan averaged 5404.76 USD Million from 1981 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 21482.00 USD Million in the first quarter of 2015 and a record low of -851.00 USD Million in the first quarter of 1981.
