The rest of the world consists of non-residents entering into transactions with residents. It should be noted that the rest of the world account is presented from the viewpoint of a non-resident. Interest paid to non-residents, for example, is shown as a positive amount representing the interest non-residents earned in Aruba. Similarly, net lending with the rest of the world is shown as a positive total, reflecting that the rest of the world is a net lender to Aruba.
