May 18, 2001

The increase in the services surplus resulted from $0.2 billion increase in services exports that were greater than the $0.1 billion increase in services imports. Services exports that totaled $25.4 billion presented increases in the travel and passenger fares categories, while services imports that reached $18.9 billion in March experienced a decrease in other transportation services that was partially offset by slight increases in travel and passenger fares imports.
