Japan Aug current account surplus falls 63.7 pct y/y

TOKYO, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Japan's current account surplus
fell 63.7 percent in August from a year earlier, Ministry of

    The fall in the surplus compared with a median estimate for
a 23.4 percent annual increase. 
    The surplus stood at 161.5 billion yen ($1.66 billion),
versus the median forecast for a 549.0 billion yen surplus.($1 = 97.0350 Japanese yen)
