Notes : (1)The total of all countries/territories presented in this table is different from the aggregate direct investment liabilities presented in Table 047 due to the adoption of different presentation principles, with the former compiled based on the "directional principle" and the latter based on the "asset/liability principle" in accordance with the international statistical standards. The total of all countries/territories in this table should be referred to in calculating the shares of individual investor countries/territories, while the direct investment liabilities in Table 047 should be referred to in the analyses on aggregate statistics.
 (2)Individual figures may not add up to the total due to rounding.
 (3)Country/Territory here refers to the immediate source economy. It does not necessarily reflect the country/territory from which the funds are initially mobilised.
 (4)Negative inflow does not necessarily relate to equity withdrawal. It may be the result of repayment of loans owed to non-resident affiliates.
 (5)Selected major investor country/territory are selected based on the position of Hong Kong's inward DI from individual investor countries/territories in recent years.
