calicep1 Official flows, net
In the capital account section of the WEO databse, there is a line labelled "official flows, net". I would like to know what is in. Thanks, Piero

"Official flows, net" constitutes official portfolio flows and other official flows that are neither portfolio nor FDI (bank loans, trade credit etc); it excludes grants and includes overseas investments of official investment agencies. Flows reported are the net increase in assets minus net increase in liabilities.
