Current account surpluses in the EUpdf(2 MB) Choose translations of the previous link 

This report analyses the persistently high current account surpluses in a number of Member States. In particular, the report explores whether the large surpluses in several EU Member States have been optimal from their own perspective, whether there is a link between surpluses and deficits in the euro area and whether there is a sustainable rebalancing in the euro area (and the EU) on the way.
