Release Information

Data of the balance of payments are disseminated in millions of Litas indicated as follows: imports and exports of goods and services; net income receipts (compensation of employees, and investment income); net receipts from current transfers; capital transfers; direct investment; portfolio investment; financial derivatives; other investment flows; and the change in official reserves assets. The data cover the entire economy's transactions with the rest of the world. The data are also disseminated in millions of Euro and U.S. dollars.

The data are not seasonally adjusted.

Analytical framework: Lithuania's Balance of Payments is compiled on a quarterly basis. (However, as from January 2002, the Bank of Lithuania has also started to publish monthly key indicators of the Balance of Payments. See H.0.7.) The BOP is comprised of standard items. Current Account shows bilateral transactions in trade and services, receivable and payable interest, and current transfers (such as irrevocably transferred valuables and monetary funds, humanitarian aid, etc.).The Capital and Financial Account records transactions of non-residents with non-produced and non-financial assets (Intangible Assets), as well as capital transfers, reflecting movements of financial assets from country to country. A transaction involves a change of ownership, including the creation or liquidation of an asset or liability. Changes in assets or liabilities that do not result from transactions are excluded from the BOP.

Definition: Balance of payments is a statistical statement summarizing the economic transactions of residents of Lithuania with the rest of the world during a quarter (month).

The quarterly (monthly) data are revised and finalized at the time the annual data are compiled. The first revision of quarterly data and compilation of annual data are made at the end of March. The final quarterly and annual data are published in the quarterly publication Balance of Payments of the Republic of Lithuania for the reference year, published usually in October. Explanations of the reasons for the revisions and the revision policy are given in each of the relevant publications containing balance of payments data.
