Foreign Direct Investment Regulation Guide - Second Edition
While the appetite, and necessity, for outside capital remains unabated, increasingly this is running into increasing national security concerns – particularly since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – as well as stricter regulations on mergers. Although controls on foreign direct investment were already in place before covid-19, the pandemic and a growing shift towards protectionist economic policies have brought these concerns into sharper focus for governments. The second edition of the Foreign Direct Investment Regulation Guide – edited by Veronica Roberts – provides practical and timely guidance for both practitioners and enforcers trying to navigate this fast-moving environment. The Guide draws on the wisdom and expertise of distinguished practitioners globally to provide essential guidance on subjects as diverse as the evolving perspective on deals with China to the changing face of national security.
