The EU was the main origin of this amount with a share of 50.2%.

The U.K. ($631 million), the Netherlands ($438 million), and Germany ($189 million) were the top three European sources of direct capital inflow over the same period.

"In January-July this year, $1.04 billion of the total equity capital entry was in the manufacturing sector," the ministry said. It was followed by the financial intermediation sector with $729 million and the wholesale and retail trade sector with $597 million.
