In the 12 months up to September, the current account balance recorded a surplus of EUR 1.7 billion, which was below the EUR 1.8 billion surplus observed in the previous month and marked a 19-month low.

According to the Bank of Spain, preliminary estimates showed that exports and imports expanded in September, while the travel surplus improved moderately.
