Japan logged a current account surplus of ¥1.91 trillion ($17.3 billion) in July, up 24.5% from a year earlier, aided by increased exports to China and the United States as demand continued to recover from impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Finance Ministry said Wednesday.

The country has remained in the black for 85 months but the surplus level was still lower than that seen in July 2019, before the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
