Central Bank of Nigeria


Private Foreign Investment, Foreign Investment, Foreign Capital


Capital inflow consisted of unremitted profits, increase in equity holdings and debentures, commercial credits and other short-term loans from overseas parent or affiliate companies. The decline in retained profits as a proportion of private capital investment, therefore, reflects the increase in the outpay-ments on account of dividends, interests and service charges. An estimate and analysis of total private foreign investment based on response from questionnaires submitted are presented in this paper.
