FDI Records US$471 Million Net Inflows in June 2022; H1 2022 Level Rises by 3.1 Percent

Foreign direct investment (FDI) continued to post net inflows amounting to US$471 million in June 2022, although lower by 51.5 percent than the US$971 million net inflows in June 2021.1,2 On a year-to-date basis, FDI net inflows for the first half of the year reached US$4.6 billion, higher by 3.1 percent than the US$4.5 billion net inflows recorded in the comparable period in 2021 (Figure 1). Said cumulative growth was due to the expansion in non-residents’ net investments in debt instruments, which more than offset the decrease in their net placements of equity capital (other than reinvestment of earnings).[3]
