Screening of Foreign Investments in China and in Europe – Diverging Directions?

The EU has confirmed its openness to foreign investments. However, it has also recognised the need to defend its essential interests. For this reason, a new European framework for the screening of foreign investments into the European Union was proposed by the European Commission in September 2017. At the same time, the Chinese Government is reducing foreign investment restrictions in line with President Xi Jinping’s vision. Companies internationally active need to be aware of these developments. But, are these rules all that they appear?

You are cordially invited to our event, during which we will examine recent evolutions in the European and Chinese regulatory frameworks.

Linklaters is honoured to organise this event jointly with the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce (FCCC).
