Foreign investment regimes face the difficult challenge of striking the right balance between, on one hand, maintaining the flexibility required to reach an appropriate decision in any given case and, on the other, creating rules that are sufficiently clear and predictable to ensure that the home jurisdiction offers the benefits of an attractive investment climate. The reality faced by foreign investors is that without sufficient advanced planning, foreign investment reviews, which sometimes takes place in a politicised environment and under close media scrutiny, can potentially result in delay, increased costs and even the blocking or unwinding of a transaction. Given these risks, parties to a proposed investment are well advised to gain a thorough understanding of the regulatory regimes in each jurisdiction – particularly given the significant variation in the foreign investment review regimes in place in various countries – and to engage with regulatory counsel early in the planning process so that deal risk can be properly assessed and managed.
This inaugural edition of The Foreign Investment Regulation Review includes contributions from leading experts around the world providing relevant information on and insights into the framework of laws and regulations governing foreign investment in each of the 23 featured jurisdictions, including the timing and mechanics of any required foreign investment approvals, and other practices that are specific to each jurisdiction.
