Foreign direct investment (FDI) in the economy of Ukraine due to the participation of a direct investor in capital increased in January-June 2021 by 2.7 billion US dollars.
"Foreign direct investment inflows are determined mainly by reinvested earnings of foreign investors. Thus, foreign direct investment in Ukraine's economy due to the participation of a direct investor in capital increased in 6 months by 2.7 billion US dollars, of which $ 2.3 billion - reinvested direct income investor ", - wrote the chairman of the National Bank Bohdan Danylyshyn.
At the same time, excluding reinvested earnings, the direct investor's investment in the capital of the direct investment enterprise (US $ 430 million) was insufficient even to compensate for the outflow of direct investors from direct investment enterprises through debt instruments (US $ -460 million).
Reinvested earnings are the share of direct investors in retained earnings or losses of a direct investment enterprise, calculated on the basis of net income from operating activities of FDI banks in accordance with the share of foreign direct investor participation in their capital.
