Eurozone trade surplus narrows in seven months
The trade surplus for the 19 countries sharing the euro currency narrowed from January through July compared with the same period last year, Luxembourg-based eurostat, the European Union's statistics office, said on Friday.
The difference between goods exported and imported was €130 billion compared with €154.1 billion, eurostat said in a statement.
The region's job vacancy rate for the second quarter of 2017 was 1.9%, the office said in a separate statement. That is stable compared with the first three months of this year and an increase from 1.7% in the same period of 2016, it said.
