China's current account surplus jumped 25 percent from one year earlier to 306.2 billion U.S. dollars last year, China's foreign exchange regulator said Monday.

The country's capital and financial account surplus hit 165.6 billion U.S. dollars last year, compared with 109.1 billion U.S. dollars in 2009, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange said in a statement on its website.

In the fourth quarter of 2010, China's current account surplus rose 13 percent year on year to 102.2 billion U.S. dollars, almost unchanged from the third quarter's 102.3 billion surplus.

Further, China's capital and financial account surplus amounted to 83.5 billion U.S. dollars in the fourth quarter.
