Balance of Payments

The balance of payments systematically summarizes all economic transactions between residents and nonresidents of the country or geographical area. The balance of payments is information on international transactions; it includes the country's or territory's current account balance (goods, services, income, current transfers). It is the difference between the amount of payments received from abroad, and the amount of payments moving abroad.
