* The data on gross external debt covers only part of the external financial relations of Portugal. Indeed, gross external debt statistics do not include (a) financial liabilities arising from participation rights (i.e., shares and investment funds units related with portfolio investment; and equity capital, reinvested earnings and real estate investment regarding direct investment) and (b) any financial claims on non-residents. The International Investment Position and related stock statistics, which the Banco de Portugal publishes regularly, provides a comprehensive overview of Portugal’s financial relations with non-residents, including the aforementioned items (all external assets and the remaining external liabilities).
