The European Union has long been an attractive destination for foreign direct investment (FDI), but investors should be aware that new screening measures will come into force later this year.

While FDI contributes to economic growth and job creation in the E.U., some concerns have been raised about foreign companies taking over European assets, particularly in strategic areas such as technology and healthcare. To address this issue, the European Commission released a legal framework in March to screen FDI, which will come into effect in October this year.

Further guidelines were issued towards the end of March to strengthen the screening in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has seen healthcare companies in particular being targeted by overseas businesses.

How exactly does the screening work? How will foreign investors be affected by the new measures?

At this webinar organized by the Chamber's Europe Committee, Davide de Rosa, Partner, Gianni Origoni Grippo Cappelli & Partners, will discuss the mechanisms of the E.U.'s new FDI regulations and share his thoughts on points to note to when investing in the E.U.

Register now to ensure you are up to date with the investment climate in Europe.
