The amount of dollars coming into the country surpassed that of dollar leaving, the country’s Central Bank reported Wednesday (May 9). Last month, the positive balance stood at $14.394 billion. In the first three business days in May, the figure also remained positive—$283 million, compared to $17.347 year-to-date.

In April, the financial flow—including investment in bonds, profit and dividends remittances overseas and foreign direct investment, among others—stood at a positive $6.756 billion, whereas the commercial flow—exchange operations for exports and imports—saw a surplus of $7.638 billion.

From the beginning of 2018 to last week, the financial flow posted a net outflow—inflow deducted—of $3.645. In this period, the trade flow was positive at $20.991 billion.
