U.S. DEFICIT UP TO $128.2 BLN

U.S. DEFICIT UP TO $128.2 BLN

BEAThe U.S. current-account deficit increased to $128.2 billion (preliminary) in the fourth quarter of 2017 from $101.5 billion (revised) in the third quarter, according to statistics released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The deficit was 2.6 percent of current- dollar gross domestic product (GDP) in the fourth quarter, up from 2.1 percent in the third quarter.

The $26.7 billion increase in the current-account deficit mostly reflected increases in the deficits on goods and secondary income and a decrease in the surplus on primary income.

Exports of goods and services and income receipts 

Exports of goods and services and income receipts increased $16.6 billion in the fourth quarter to $878.8 billion. 

* Goods exports increased $14.2 billion to $400.7 billion, mostly reflecting an increase in industrial supplies and materials, primarily petroleum and products.

* Primary income receipts increased $6.0 billion to $243.9 billion, mostly reflecting increases in direct investment income and in portfolio investment income.

* Secondary income receipts decreased $5.9 billion to $35.3 billion, partly offsetting the increases in goods exports and in primary income receipts. The decrease in secondary income receipts mostly reflected a decrease in U.S. government transfers, primarily fines and penalties.

Imports of goods and services and income payments 

Imports of goods and services and income payments increased $43.3 billion to $1,006.9 billion. 

* Goods imports increased $33.1 billion to $614.9 billion, mostly reflecting increases in industrial supplies and materials, primarily petroleum and products, and in consumer goods except food and automotive. 

* Primary income payments increased $7.3 billion to $186.7 billion, primarily reflecting an increase in direct investment income.

NIGERIA'S GDP UP 2%

IMF - Higher oil prices and short-term portfolio inflows have provided relief from external and fiscal pressures but the recovery remains challenging. Inflation declined to its lowest level in more than two years. Real GDP expanded by 2 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to the first quarter of last year. However, activity in the non-oil non-agricultural sector remains weak as lower purchasing power weighs on consumer demand and as credit risk continues to limit bank lending.
