Malta’s net international investment position stood at €14.1 billion as at the end of 2022, a decrease of €0.4 billion as foreign investment in Malta outstripped Maltese investment abroad.

When compared to the figures recorded in the end of 2021, total foreign assets increased by €36.1 billion in 2022 while total foreign liabilities increased by €36.5 billion in 2022, according to new figures published by the National Statistics Office.

The level of Malta’s total foreign assets abroad amounted to €561.8 billion as at the end of 2022.

Direct investment accounted for 79.7 per cent while other investment represented 13.5 per cent of total foreign assets. The increase in Malta’s foreign assets was driven mainly by a €37.1 billion increase in direct investment.

At the end of December 2022, Malta’s foreign liabilities stood at €547.6 billion. Direct investment totalled €460.8 billion up from €422.8 billion recorded in December 2021 and accounted for 84.1 per cent of total foreign liabilities. Other investment represented 12.4 per cent of total foreign liabilities and totalled €67.9 billion for the corresponding year.

These figures cannot be directly compared to the previously published figures for 2021, due to the inclusion of new data sources and greater collaboration with the Central Bank of Malta, as outlined in an update released last June.
