  • Description: Japan's current account surplus increased for the first time in three years to 17.1 trillion yen in 2010, up from 13.3 trillion yen in 2009. The capital and financial account deficit (net outflows) was 12.9 trillion yen in 2010, more or less unchanged from 12.6 trillion yen in 2009. Reserve assets continued to increase, rising by 3.8 trillion yen in 2010, compared to an increase of 2.5 trillion yen in 2009, due to a resumption of the foreign exchange intervention operations and an increase in investment income on reserve assets. Balance of payments data for 2010 and the fourth quarter of 2010 in this report are preliminary unless otherwise stated.
