NBS puts investment inflow at $1.04bn

The National Bureau of Statistics on Sunday released a revised version of the capital importation report for the second quarter, with estimated investment inflow of $1.04bn.
The investment inflow represents an increase of 46.58 per cent over the amount recorded in the first quarter of this year.
This contrasts with the preliminary estimate of $647.1m for the second quarter that was based on the first two months of the quarter, which indicated a quarter-on-quarter decrease of 8.98 per cent.
However, a sharp increase in June outweighed the low values recorded in April ($305.82m) and May ($125.58m).
