South Africa’s positive net international investment position (IIP) increased from a revised R508 billion at the end of December 2018 to R912 billion at the end of March 2019. The increase in the positive net IIP in the first quarter of 2019 reflected a larger increase in foreign assets than in foreign liabilities, as global equity markets rebounded after a sharp decline in the fourth quarter of 2018.
