Screening of Foreign Direct Investments in the EU Under the New FDI Regulation
The FDI Regulation represents a fundamental evolution. It is the first time that the screening of foreign direct investments ("FDI") is regulated at European Union ("EU") level. It has the potential to significantly impact those investors from third countries that consider investing in the EU. Importantly, it can also be of relevance to those EU investors interested in EU target companies that have reason to believe that they compete with third country investors.
