Whilst foreign investment controls as a symbol of increasing protectionist policies were expanding prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, the pandemic has accelerated their spread and scope, particularly in Europe as governments look to protect key domestic ‘assets’ from falling into foreign ownership.

Watch our hour long webinar featuring panellists from across Asia, Europe and the US who provide an overview of the changing landscape of foreign investment controls globally and how COVID-19 will have a lasting effect on foreign direct investment and mergers & acquisitions.

Our international panel provide a global overview to the following questions:

  • What was the outlook on foreign investment controls before COVID-19?
  • How has the pandemic changed these controls?
  • What impact will these changes and controls have on deals?
  • How should companies engaged in M&A react?
  • What affect will foreign investment controls have on where private investors choose to invest?
  • What long-term affect will coronavirus have on foreign investment and deals?
