The external sector balance sheet (stock) and economic aggregate (flow) reflect a country’s International Investment Position (IIP) and Balance of Payments (BOP) respectively. Studying the assets and liabilities of the external sector and grasping the total amount and structure of China’s external economy will help to make clear the real resources that can be mobilized and possible financial risks in the face of external shocks and thus enable us to take corresponding countermeasures in time.
