ISTANBUL (AA) - The European Central Bank announced that the eurozone saw a current account surplus of €18 billion ($20.5 billion) in June.

Current account surplus was €30 billion ($33.3 billion) in May and €24 billion ($27.8 billion) in June a year earlier, according to official figures.

Meanwhile, the current account posted a surplus of €318 billion ($362.5 billion) in the 12-month period to June.

The 12-month surplus also narrowed versus €391 billion ($453.5 billion) in the same period last year.

The surplus in the 12-month period was 2.7% of the eurozone's GDP, while this ratio was 3.4% in the same period in 2018.
