Balance of payments – summary – total
This table shows the balance of payments (BOP), which represents a systematic record of economic transactions between residents of Austria and residents of other countries. The balance of payments consists of a real economy section (current account) and a financial section (financial account). Transactions are presented in the form of double entry bookkeeping. The compilation method builds on the international standards laid down in the IMF Balance of Payments Manual and on the System of National Accounts. Furthermore, it undergoes regular revisions and offers a high degree of detail.
