Outflows in April 2018 stemmed mainly from payments made by the National Government (NG) for its maturing foreign exchange obligations and foreign exchange operations of the BSP. These were partially offset, however, by income from the BSP’s investments abroad and net foreign currency deposits of the NG during the month.
