Managing Heightened National Security Concerns to Get Your Deal Approved

The first ever EU-wide mechanism to improve coordination and information exchange on the screening of inward foreign direct investments (FDI) was formally adopted by EU Member States this past March. The Member States and the Commission have 18 months to enable the new mechanism to operate.

With these profound changes in the EU and the global expansion of CFIUS, this new Forum will equip you with the very best tools to compete against economies applying different rules within their trade and competition landscape.

Against the backdrop of the EU Commission’s recent prohibition decision in the Siemens-Alstom merger, German and French governments are calling for a change of the EU’s competition laws. In culmination of this and acknowledging the influx of Chinese investors, fend off competition from state-owned giants and find out how you can become the European industrial champion.
