Net foreign direct investments in the Philippines slipped 45.9 percent year-on-year to USD 0.53 billion in November 2018, the second lowest level since July 2017, from USD 0.98 billion in the same month of the previous year. The decline was due largely to the drop in net investments in debt instruments which amounted to USD 0.33 billion from USD 0.72 billion in the same of the previous year. Also, net investments of equity capital fell to USD 0.14 billion from USD 0.20 billion a year ago.

In January to November, FDI net inflows declined 3.2 percent to USD 9.1 billion from USD 9.4 billion in the same period last year.
