I have a question

Imagine the savings desire increased in a large economy, obviously the current account of this country would improve holding all other factors constant, but how would the magnitude of the current account improvement compare to a small economy.

Would the improvement in current account be larger or smaller or the same as the current account improvement in a smaller economy?

I'd have thought that if a larger economy saved more, the effects would be greater on the current account than a small economy because they are importing less and that magnitude of import decrease is a lot more given they are a big economy and trade more
