The current account deficit narrowed to 2.629 billion euros in January to September, down 141 million euros from the same period in 1998, the Bank of Greece said on Friday.
However, the trade deficit widened by 644 million euros, due to a rise in spending on imports, the central bank said in a statement.
At the end of 1999, foreign currency reserves stood at 19 billion US dollars, the statement said.
