Read Time:46 Second

Foreign direct investment (FDI) posted US$460 million net inflows in July 2022, bringing the cumulative net inflows to US$5.1 billion for the first seven months of 2022.1,2 These levels, however, were lower than the comparable net inflows posted a year-ago (US$1.3 billion and US$5.8 billion, respectively). All major FDI components yielded lower net inflows in January-July 2022 as foreign investors remained cautious amid continued adverse global conditions (Figure 1).

In July 2022, FDI net inflows decreased due largely to the lower non-residents’ net investments in debt instruments of their local affiliates.3 This decrease more than offset the growth in their net investments in equity capital (Figure 2).
