The stock position of Foreign Direct Investment in Malta as at the end of December 2012 stood at €12.3 billion, while Direct Investment abroad amounted to €1.1 billion.
The National Statistics Office said that at the end of December 2012, foreign direct investment stock in Malta was estimated at €12.3 billion, with 80.9 per cent originating from financial and insurance activities.
This amounts to an increase of €376.1 million over the position at the end of 2011. Geographically, the EU is the largest contributor to Malta’s inward foreign direct investment, with €8.5 billion, or 68.8 per cent of total FDI. Germany accounted for 40.9 per cent of total FDI in Malta.
Net FDI flows were estimated at -€33.3 million, a decline of €216.2 million when compared to 2011. This was mainly the result of decreases in equity capital and increases in receivables from direct investors. These changes were partly counterbalanced by an increase in reinvested earnings of €134.2 million over those recorded in 2011.
Direct investment flows abroad during 2012 decreased by €75.6 million compared to an increase of €2.2 million during 2011. This was mainly the result of a drop of €48.0 million in equity capital coupled with an increase in payables to direct investors of €64.5 million NSO confirmed.
In terms of stock positions, direct investment abroad by resident enterprises as at end December 2012 was estimated at €1.1 billion, of which €529.6 million was invested in the EU.
