Foreign Direct Investments
Foreign Direct Investment statistics are compiled in compliance with the international standards, IMF and Eurostat requirements for the compilation of the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position.
Foreign Direct statistics specify direct investment abroad by resident investors and investments in the domestic economy by non-residents. The balance of payments statistics present transactions related to direct investment for a certain period of time. Meanwhile, the International Investment Position shows the direct investment situation at the end of a reference period.
The direct investment stock statistics provide information on the capital links arising from residents’ participating interests in foreign enterprises on non-residents’ participating interests in Albanian enterprises at a specific point in time.
The economic transactions (which are harmonised with the stock at the end of the period) between residents and non-residents within a given period appear in the balance of payments statistics.
