December 27 (SeeNews) - Montenegro's current account deficit widened 60.8% on the year in the first nine months to 511.1 million euro ($746 million), central bank preliminary statistics showed on Thursday.
The January-September current account deficit was equivalent to 32.7% of the estimated gross domestic product (GDP) of the country, the central bank said in a statement.
“Such a high current account deficit in this period was financed from net FDI [foreign direct investment] inflow, which amounted to 21.6% of GDP, and from other investments, which amounted to 9.6% of GDP,” the statement added.
In Q3 alone, the current account surplus rose nearly seven times on the year to 47.5 million euro.
