International Department

Japan's international investment position statistics reflects changes of compiling methodologies of financial derivatives and securities lending from data at year-end 2001 (released on May 24, 2002): (1)Categorizing financial derivatives as an independent item (not as one of the sub-items under portfolio investment) in accordance with a part of methodological changes concerning the 5th edition of the Balance of Payments Manual issued by the IMF; (2)Excluding securities lending from portfolio investment and other investment.

Historical revisions are made from data at year-end 1996.

(However, as for Regional Portfolio Investment Position, figures before year-end 1999 are not available.)
