Foreign direct investment in Bulgaria in the first nine months of 2014 stood at 1.1 billion euro, the equivalent of 2.7 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP), the Bulgarian National Bank (BNB) said on November 17.

In the same period of 2013, the figure was 1.16 billion euro (2.8 per cent of GDP), but the original amount reported by BNB last year was 854.4 million euro, which was revised upward later.

Investment in equity, including in the real estate sector, stood at 259.4 million euro (compared to 765.7 million euro in January-September 2013) and re-invested earnings accounted for 124.4 million euro (versus 73.3 million euro in the first nine months of last year).
