  • Description:

    The international investment position (IIP) is a statistical statement that shows at a point in time the value and composition of: -financial assets of residents of an economy that are claims on non-residents and gold bullion held as reserve assets, and -liabilities of residents of an economy to non-residents. The difference between an economy’s external financial assets and liabilities is the economy’s net IIP, which may be positive or negative. Respectively the net international investment position (NIIP) provides an aggregate view of the net financial position (assets minus liabilities) of a country vis-à-vis the rest of the world. It allows for a stock-flow analysis of external position of the country. The indicator is expressed in percent of GDP. The indicator is based on the Eurostat data from the Balance of payment statistics, i.e. the same data source used for the current account balance. Definitions are based on the IMF Sixth Balance of Payments Manual (BPM6).
