MADRID, April 30 (Reuters) - Spain's current account was in deficit to the tune of 1.30 billion euros in February, down from a deficit of 5.88 billion euros in the same month a year earlier, largely due to a lower trade deficit, the Bank of Spain said on Tuesday.
The trade deficit alone stood at 600.8 million euros in February, down from 3.19 billion euros in the same month last year, as exports rose 4.4 percent while imports dropped 8.2 percent.
Spain also registered capital inflows of 10.82 billion euros after 30.37 billion euros in January.
