Antitrust Chronicle™ - Foreign Direct Investment
Foreign direct investment (“FDI”) control is rapidly emerging as a key regulatory vector across the U.S, Europe, and worldwide. In the U.S., FDI control is primarily the responsibility of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”). In the EU, aside from the adoption of the EU FDI Regulation in 2019, national FDI screening procedures are established in 18 (soon to be 19) Member States. Similarly, the UK implemented its National Security and Investment Act (“NSIA”) in early 2022.
