From the Editor’s Desk  

Recently, the National Bureau of Statistics published the Q2 2018 Capital Importation Report.  According to the report, Foreign direct investment rose from $246 million in the first  quarter  of 2018 to $261million  at the end of second  quarter of 2018, reflecting a 5.97% uptick  in  foreign  direct investment streamed largely  from  a  3.69% growth  in equity.


Portfolio investment fell from $4.565 billion in the first quarter of 2018 to $4.11 billion   at end of the second quarter of 2018.  The decline in foreign portfolio investment was largely due to a 24.48% drop in money market instrument. Thus, money market instrument stood at $2.67 billion in Q2 2018, making it 48% of total capital importation and 64% of total foreign portfolio investment.


Holistically, capital  importation  at the of the  second quarter slipped  by  12.53% from  $6.3 billion in  the first quarter of 2018 to $5.13 billion.
