NIGERIAN CAPITAL IMPORTATION Q3 2016
The data on Capital Importation used in this report was obtained from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The data is compiled using information on Banking transactions, gathered through Electronic Financial Analysis and Surveillance System (e-FASS) software, which enables the automatic reporting of all banking transactions to CBN. E-FASS follows WTO classification systems and covers all registered financial institutions in Nigeria, thus complying with international standards as well as being highly comprehensive. E-FASS data is supplemented by that form customs, through the analysis of declaration forms for physical capital imported.
The Data is therefore inclusive of both imported physical capital, such as that of plants and machinery, as well as financial capital importation.
NOTE: The Data is subject to revisions within the quarter subsequent to its release. Finalised data and reports updated accordingly and published online.
