Key points

  • Key points:
  • Annual drop of 11.9% in net foreign direct investment during the January–September period of 2019
  • The current account deficit decreased by USD 17.2 billion in January–September 2019 vs. the same nine-month period of the previous year, mainly due to the trade balance on non-oil goods posting a higher surplus
