100% foreign investments and those made in partnership have dropped from 538.1 MD in the first seven months of 2016 to 461.9 MD during the same period of 2017, down 14.2%.
This decline is due to 100% foreign projects, whose investment fell from 254.5 MD to 168.3 MD in the first seven months of 2017 (-33.9%), while projects in partnership recorded a 3.5% increase (293.6 MD against 283.6 MD during the first seven months of 2016).
