Greece's current account deficit widened in March compared to the same month last year, due to an increase in imports of fuel and other goods, the Bank of Greece said on Tuesday.

Central bank data showed the deficit at 1.503 billion euros ($1.68 billion) from a deficit of 1.151 billion euros in March last year.

Tourism revenues rose 32 percent in March year-on-year to 318.5 million euros. [Reuters]
