Greek current account surplus widens in September

ATHENS, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Greece's current account surplus
widened in September, the Bank of Greece said on Tuesday, helped
by a rise in tourism receipts. 
    The current account balance, a key measure of economic   
competitiveness, showed a surplus of 964 million euros ($1.30
billion) from 895 million euros in the same month last year.
    Tourism receipts, the country's biggest money earner, rose  
17.3 percent year-on-year to 2.07 billion euros in September,  
bringing total revenue in the first nine months of the year to  
10.7 billion euros, up 14.3 percent year-on-year.
