The total stocks of External Assets for Palestine amounted to $5,855 million, the foreign direct investment abroad had contributed to 6.0%, portfolio investments abroad reached 18.5%, while other foreign investments abroad (mainly currency and deposits) reached 65.5% and reserve assets amounted to 9.9%, stated the release.

At sector level, the external investments of banking represented a large share of the external assets, standing at 74.4% of the total value of external assets.

The statistics bureau said that the total stocks of Foreign Liabilities in Palestine (Stocks of non- residents invested in Palestine) had amounted to $4,956 million, the foreign direct investment in Palestine contributed 50.1%, portfolio investments in Palestine reached 16.6% and other investments in Palestine (mainly loans and deposits from abroad) amounted to 33.3%.

According to sectoral level, the foreign investments in banking sector contributed a major value in the foreign liabilities, represented by 35.5% of the total value of foreign liabilities.
