Frankfurt - The eurozone's current account swung back to a surplus of €9.1bn in March from a deficit of €1.2bn in February, European Central Bank data showed on Wednesday.

The current account on the balance of payments, which includes imports and exports in both goods and services plus all other current transfers, is a closely tracked indicator of the ability of a country or area to pay its way in the world.
