On 11th April, Sheppard Mullin published an article saying that the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, CFIUS, is the US government agency that conducts national security reviews of foreign direct investment in the US.  It also says that, around the world, countries are creating new laws, or dusting off old ones, to also allow their governments to examine and restrict foreign investment.  The article presents an overview of the emerging (or re-emerging) foreign investment legal regimes in the EU – including domestic laws in France, Germany, Italy and the UK – Canada, Norway, South Korea, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.  The article uses a table to summarise the essential points of the French, German, Italian and British FDI review mechanisms; and another for key elements of the FDI review systems for Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea.
