IMF: Net capital inflow drops in 5 straight years


04-07-2016 16:42 BJT

The IMF also said in the report that as an entire economic body, emerging markets' net capital inflows have now dropped for five consecutive years. The situation was worst in 2015. Senior IMF economist Luis Catao explained the decline. 

The IMF report said that the slowdown in capital inflows impacted most emerging markets. But the report also pointed out that thanks to global financial integration and more flexible forex rates, most emerging markets have the ability to fight the risks.

The total overseas merger capital of Chinese firms reached almost 98 billion U.S. dollars in this year's first quarter. That's about 80 percent of 2015's total amount. The outflows triggered some concerns. But Catao said that the understanding of capital outflow is difficult. He said that as emerging markets become increasingly mature, more and more companies will want to diversify their assets.
