The Orrick Guide to Foreign Investment Reviews (October 2022 Update)

2 hour read | October.18.2022

This October 2022 updated Orrick Guide to Foreign Investment Reviews reflects changes since its prior publication in December 2020. The regulatory landscape for Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) is continuously changing across jurisdictions covered by this guide. A major contributor to this trend is concerns about investments by state-owned or state-controlled foreign players and the possibly adverse effects that such investments may have for national security or national interests. A number of countries have introduced new measures to provide for review of investments by non-nationals or strengthened their existing measures. We monitor and periodically update the Orrick Guide to Foreign Investment Reviews to address changes in international FDI regimes.
