``The surplus swelled by 55% in 2015, to $595 billion, figures released Wednesday showed. This news isn't as good as looks. For one, it doesn't reflect a boom in exports, which for the full year actually fell by 2.8%. The surplus widened because imports fell even more, by 14.1%.... it appears that there was roughly $750 billion of capital outflow in 2015. No wonder the currency is under pressure.''
