Europe's current account surplus narrowed from 2.3% to 2.2% of GDP between 2019 and 2020, the European Central Bank's latest Economic Bulletin shows, although a sharp drop in nominal GDP as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions saw its real value fall from EUR 280 billion to EUR 250 billion.
