China's capital and financial account deficit in the third quarter was revised down to $51.7 billion from the previous figure of $71 billion, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange said on Wednesday.
The net inflow of foreign direct investment was $38.5 billion. Excluding the effect of fluctuations in exchange rates and asset prices, the country's international reserve assets declined by $400 million in the third quarter, the administration said in a statement.
Although the capital and financial deficit was revised downwards, it remains higher than the second-quarter figure of $41.2 billion, suggesting a larger amount of capital outflows than three months earlier.
