Net international investment position

The net international investment position (NIIP) is the difference between the external financial assets and liabilities of a country.[1] External debt of a country includes government debt and private debt. External assets publicly and privately held by a country's legal residents are also taken into account when calculating NIIP.[2] Please note that commodities and currencies tend to follow a cyclical pattern of significant valuation changes, which is also reflected in NIIP.

US Net International Investment Position

The International investment position (IIP) of a country is a financial statement of the value and composition of its external financial assets and liabilities. A positive NIIP value indicates that a nation is a creditor nation, while a negative value indicates that it is a debtor nation.

HistoryEdit

The US was the world's largest creditor until the 1960s. However, over the last few decades, the US has become the world's largest debtor[citation needed]. Since the 1980s, Japan replaced the USA as the world's largest creditor nation[citation needed]. With the ascent of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority's credit position since 2015, China (including Hong Kong and Macau) and Japan have been competing for the top creditor position.
