Taiwan's International Investment Position, 2015

Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)

PRESS RELEASE                                   Release Date: June 15, 2016         

  Taiwan's International Investment Position, 2015

A country's international investment position is the balance sheet of the stock of residents' financial assets and liabilities to the rest of the world.

At the end of 2015, Taiwan's total external assets grew by US$65.25 billion, or 4.2%, to US$1,634.71 billion, compared to the end of 2014. This was mainly attributable to an increase in investment in foreign debt securities by insurance companies.

Taiwan's total external liabilities at the end of 2015 stood at US$580.81 billion, decreasing by US$52.04 billion, or 8.2%, from the end of the previous year. This was mainly due to falling local stock prices and repayments for borrowings from banks' overseas branches .

As of the end of 2015, Taiwan's international investment continued to record a net asset position of US$1,053.91 billion, increasing by US$117.30 billion or 12.5% over the end of the previous year. Taiwan currently ranks as the 4th largest net creditor in the world.
