Net foreign direct investment into the Philippines surged 41.5 percent year-on-year to 12-month high of USD 961 million in January 2021, reflecting investors’ optimism at the start of the year due to the gradual reopening of the economy, easing of lockdown measures, and positive news about the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines. The increase in FDI was supported mainly by a 116 percent expansion in non-residents’ net investment in debt instruments to USD 535 million from USD 248 million in the same month last year. Meanwhile, net equity capital investments rose marginally by 0.5 percent to USD 351 million. Bulk of the equity capital placements during the period came from Singapore, Japan and the Netherlands.
