South Korea logged a current account surplus for the second straight month in June on the back of a trade surplus and increased dividend payments from overseas, central bank data showed Tuesday.
The country's current account surplus reached $5.87 billion in June, following the $1.93 billion surplus a month earlier, according to preliminary data from the Bank of Korea.
June's surplus came as the country logged a trade surplus and dividend income increased.
The country's goods account racked up a $3.98 billion surplus in June, following a $1.82 billion surplus the previous month.
The primary income account, which tracks the wages of foreign workers and dividend payments from overseas, reported a surplus of $4.85 billion, the data showed.
But the services account suffered an extended loss in June, reaching $2.61 billion, the data showed. (Yonhap)
