    New Zealand Trade Shortfall NZ$789 Million In August

    New Zealand posted a seasonally adjusted merchandise trade deficit of NZ$789 million in August, Statistics New Zealand said on Wednesday - representing 24 percent of exports.

    The headline figure was well shy of forecasts for a shortfall of NZ$630 million after posting an upwardly surplus of NZ$97 million in July. This compares with a deficit of $690 million (20 percent of exports) in August 2011.

    Exports were down 3.4 percent on year to NZ$3.32 billion - also missing expectations for NZ$3.55 billion after coming in at NZ$4.00 billion in the previous month.

    Mechanical machinery and equipment and crude oil had the largest decreases.

    The value of exports to Australia - New Zealand's largest export destination - fell $172 million (17 percent) in August 2012 compared with August 2011, Statistics New Zealand said. The fall was led by petroleum and products.

    "Lower exports to Australia contributed to the overall fall in export values," industry and labor statistics manager Neil Kelly said. "But an increase in exports to China, led by dairy products, partly offset the fall."

    Imports fell an annual 0.4 percent to NZ$4.10 billion, in line with forecasts after showing NZ$3.99 billion a month earlier.

    Seasonally adjusted exports fell 8.0 percent compared with July 2012. There was a large fall in seasonally adjusted milk powder, butter, and cheese exports, which followed two large increases in June and July. Seasonally adjusted imports fell 1.3 percent.

    The trend for exports appears to have been increasing since March, while the trend for imports has been flat in recent months. The trend for imports is 6.0 percent lower than its record level in September 2008.

    Upon the release of the data, the New Zealand dollar edged down against major rivals, trading near 0.8200 against the U.S. dollar, 1.5742 versus the euro, 63.81 against the yen and 1.2659 versus the Australian dollar.

    South Korea Has $4.31 Billion Current Account Surplus

    South Korea posted a seasonally adjusted current account surplus of $4.31 billion in August, the Bank of Korea said on Friday - down from the revised $4.42 billion in July (originally $4.38 billion) nut remaining in the black for the seventh consecutive month.

    On an unadjusted basis, South Korea saw a four-month low surplus of $2.36 billion, down from the upwardly revised record $6.14 billion in the previous month (originally $6.10 billion).

    The goods account surplus narrowed to $2.37 billion from $5.34 billion in July, primarily on a decline in exports, the bank said.

    The services account shifted to a deficit of $0.26 billion from its surplus of $0.59 billion in July due mostly to the increase in payments for the use of intellectual property rights.

    The primary income account surplus slightly widened from $0.40 billion in July to $0.44 billion, owing mainly to the decrease in dividend payments.

    The secondary income account saw a deficit of $0.19 billion. The financial account had a net outflow of $0.64 billion, down from $7.88 billion the previous month.

    Direct investment posted a net outflow of $1.61 billion, larger than $1.44 billion the previous month due to an increase in outward investment, the bank noted.

    Portfolio investment posted a net inflow of $0.58 billion, smaller than $2.53 billion in July, with the shift to a net outflow of foreign investors' debt securities investment being coupled with the increase as well in residents' foreign bond investments, the bank said - even though inflows of foreign investors' equity securities investment increased.

    Other investment switched to a net inflow of $1.43 billion from a net outflow of $7.63 billion in July owing mostly to domestic financial institutions' shift to a net withdrawal of loans.

    Reserve assets increased by $1.12 billion, while the capital account recorded a net inflow of $0.01 billion.

    Through the first eight months of the year, the current account surplus was $22.25 billion, already beating forecasts for $20 billion for all of 2012.
