Japan’s current-account surplus grew during November from a year earlier, the Finance Ministry announced, but officials said they still expect the gap to decline for the full year ending March 31. The Finance Ministry said the surplus in the current account, which measures trade in goods and services, grew to $6.76 billion in November from $5.93 billion a year earlier, the second consecutive monthly rise. The overall trade surplus during the month also rose, to $7.56 billion from $6.69 billion in November, 1987, although imports grew at a faster rate than exports.
