Balance of payments

Balance of payments (BoP) statistics provide a comprehensive record of New Zealand's economic relationship with the rest of the world. They cover:

  • international trade in goods and services
  • investment income and transfers with other countries
  • financial transactions with the rest of the world.

The international investment position (IIP) shows the level of New Zealand's international assets and liabilities at a point in time.

See balance of payments frequently asked questions for more information.
