Hungary Current-Account Surplus Shrinks in 4th Quarter

March 28 (Bloomberg) -- Hungary’s current-account surplus narrowed more than economists forecast in the fourth quarter.

The surplus was 242 million euros ($310 million), compared with a revised 843 million-euro surplus in the third quarter and a surplus of 1 million euros a year earlier, the Budapest-based central bank said in an e-mailed statement today. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of 12 economists was for 268 million euros.

Hungary, whose economy is suffering from a second recession in four years, has run current-account surpluses for the past three quarters, central bank data show.
