Release Information

Balance of payments and international investment position statistics are compiled in accordance with the most recent "Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual (BPM)." It is prepared by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to provide guidelines to countries and ensure consistent and comparable statistics.

Balance of payments is a statistical statement that records all economic transactions of residents in an economy for a specific time period. Economic transactions include:

  • goods, services and income
  • transactions of financial assets and liabilities
  • transfers between residents and nonresidents for the provision of real and financial resources
Two basic concepts in the definition:
  • Economic territory: corresponds to the geographic territory administered by a government.
  • Residence: refers to an individual who regularly resides in an economic territory for more than one year or an institutional unit who engages in economic activities within the economic territory.
