BEIJING, April 26 -- Data released by China's top foreign exchange regulator on Thursday showed the country swung back to a surplus under the capital and financial account in the first quarter after recording a deficit last year for the first time since 1999.
 
The surplus under the capital and financial account reached 101.8 billion U.S. dollars in the January-March period, compared with 31.8 billion dollars of deficit for Q4 and 117.3 billion dollars of deficit for 2012, according to the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE).
