The net foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows to the Philippines in the first 11 months of 2018 went down by 3.2 percent.

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) said the decline was due largely to the drop in net investments in debt instruments, which fell to $333 million from $724 million in the same month in 2017.

Net investments of equity capital also slipped to $137 million from $202 million in November 2017. - Business Nightly, ANC, February 11, 2019
