BEIJING — China saw a current account surplus in the second quarter (Q2), reversing from a deficit seen in the first quarter as the economy recovered amid control of the COVID-19 epidemic.

The capital and financial account recorded a deficit of $34.5 billion.

Trade in goods posted a surplus of $161.3 billion, while trade in services saw a deficit of $29.5 billion.

In the first half of this year, the country saw a current account surplus of $76.5 billion, accounting for 1.2 percent of the country's GDP, data from the administration showed.

The administration expected a mild current account surplus for the whole year, with a stable goods trade surplus and narrower service trade deficit.
