Notes:
The balance of payments format follows in general the classification and recording criteria recommended by the International Monetary Fund in the sixth edition of its Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual.
1/ Corresponds to the official statistics of the "Merchandise trade balance of Mexico". SAT, SE, Banco de México, INEGI. SNIEG. Information of National Interest.
2/ Net borrowing means that, in net terms, the rest of the world supplies funds to Mexican residents. This occurs when the net incurrence of liabilities is larger than the net acquisition of financial assets. Net lending means the opposite.
3/ Since there is no available information to disaggregate the parent company accounts of the foreign direct investment abroad in BPM5 as either net acquisition of financial assets or net incurrence of liabilities in BPM6 between 2006 and 2009, the transformation used by the International Monetary Fund is followed, so that the parent company accounts of the foreign direct investment abroad in BPM5 is classified as net acquisition of financial assets in BPM6 during the said years.
4/ Corresponds to the broad-government securities market, i.e., those issued by the Federal Government, Banco de México and the Institute for the Protection of Bank Savings (IPAB).
5/ Net transactions of financial derivatives (other than reserve assets) are the difference between assets and liabilities.
6/ Corresponds to the difference between total change in gross international reserves and valuation adjustments.
7/ The balances are the differences between credits and debits. Positive values indicate a surplus and negative values a deficit.
8/ Corresponds to the difference between the financial account and reserve assets.
