China’s global outbound foreign direct investment (OFDI) soared to record levels in 2016, jumping to almost 200 billion US dollars. The European Union continues to be a favorite destination for Chinese investors, according to a newly published analysis by MERICS and Rhodium Group.

EU's New Foreign Direct Investment Regulations Eye Specific Sectors
The European Union has now enacted a new framework for screening foreign direct investment into EU states. The authority to screen foreign direct investment in the EU lies with each nation state. But in the spirit of formalizing a harmonized approach to screening, the EU has enacted the Regulation on Foreign Direct Investment Screening (FDI Regulation). The European Parliament approved this measure, and it will become effective on October 11, 2020. Jones Day's Renato Antonini, Eva Monard , and Chase Kaniecki discuss the likely effects of the new EU-wide provisions.

EU foreign investment screening regulation enters into force
The new EU framework for the screening of foreign direct investments is in force. The framework will be instrumental in safeguarding Europe's security and public order in relation to foreign direct investments coming into the EU. President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker said: "We need scrutiny over purchases by foreign companies that target Europe's strategic assets. I want Europe to remain open for business, but I have said time and again that we are not naïve free traders. The adoption and entry into force of this proposal in an almost record time shows that when it comes to defending Europe's interests, we will always walk the talk." The Commission and EU Member States will now take the necessary steps to make the framework operational by October 2020. These steps concern, in particular, the setting up of the new EU-wide mechanism for cooperation, enabling Member States and the Commission to exchange information and raise concerns related to specific foreign investments. The proposal to create the first EU-wide framework for the screening of foreign direct investments was presented by President Juncker during the 2017 State of the Union address and adopted by the European Parliament and the Council in March 2019.

Navigating Foreign Direct Investment in Germany
Germany has two different sets of rules for the review of foreign direct investments. The relevant ordinance, the Außenwirtschaftsverordnung, or AWV, provides for a sector-specific review process applying to the acquisition, by any non-German acquirer, of German companies active in military products and crypto-technology. The other set of rules, the cross-sectoral review, applies to the acquisition of all other companies by any non-EU acquirer.

Eu may cut back on foreign direct investment SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z Source video: http://c.newsnow.co.uk/A/2/902688706?-18803:4733:1 G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By Hou Yongqi China Daily Updated 20170919 0844 In response to the European Unions new framework for investment screening, China urged the bloc on Monday not to take a protectionist path that discriminates against foreign investment. Such a move was proposed last week by EU President JeanClaude Juncker. Junckers proposal for a new investment screening framework is expected to grant EU members the power to interfere with foreign direct investment cases regarding strategic assets, especially those under Statecontrolled or financed enterprises. We hope the EU will follow basic rules of the World Trade Organization, especially the nondiscriminatory principle, to avoid any interference created by the rising protectionism sentiment, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said. He said that the EU also should not send chaotic and negative signals to the rest of the world. China and the EU have been each others major trading partners in past decades. Last year, Chinas trade volume with EU nations reached 3.61 trillion yuan $552 billion, a yearonyear increase of 3 percent, according to the General Administration of Customs. Meanwhile, the country made overseas direct investment of $ 170 billion last year, with Germany, Britain and the United States as the most popular destinations. However, Chinese company purchases have faced interference in countries such as Germany. According to a statement by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Germany, Chinese companies in Germany have concluded that they are likely to face even more political uncertainties in the future that impose additional risks on overseas investment, considering the commissions latest proposals and current changes to Germanys investment law. The EU has advocated trade liberalization and investment facilitation, and already has received real benefits, Lu said. Everyones interests are served in developing an open world economy when opportunities and benefits can be shared in openness to achieve positive outcomes, he said. The loss outweighs the gains to close the door and engage in protectionism for shortterm interests, he added. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Foreign Direct Investment: Engine for Job Growth
"Today is the moment for Europeans to invest in the Philippines. The country is making good progress and is putting itself more on the map of European companies. Let's aim for a doubling of EU FDI in the next five years," said Ambassador Guy Ledoux of the European Union (EU) Delegation at a forum entitled Foreign Direct Investments (FDI): Engine for Job Growth on 13 May 2014 held at The Mind Museum, Bonifacio Global City. Foreign Direct Investments - Guy LedouxThe EU is currently the largest foreign investor in the Philippines with an estimated stock of Euro 7.6 billion. Around 600 European companies are now in the country, employing an estimated 400,000 Filipinos. "There is much more out there. The EU contribution to the Philippines is still marginal compared to what other ASEAN countries are receiving. There are a number of measures that the Philippines could implement that could create a win-win environment for both Philippines and the EU," added Ledoux. Ledoux mentioned that liberalizing areas such as professional and financial services, as well as reducing ownership limitations in key industries such as retail, manpower recruitment, government procurement, insurance and finance will facilitate the new investments. Ledoux concluded that the ongoing review to revise the Foreign Investment Negative List and the Investment Act are good indicators that the Philippines is opening up its market.

Uzbekistan Bond Sale Will Aid Foreign Direct Investment, Says Finance Minister
Feb.14 -- Uzbekistan Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Jamshid Kuchkarov discusses the issuance of its first Eurobonds and foreign direct investment into the country. He speaks exclusively on “Bloomberg Daybreak: Europe.”
China was top destination for foreign direct investment last year, topping U.S.
China was the number one target for foreign direct investment last year... topping the U.S. for the first time in more than a decade. The country′s steady growth was cited as the main reason, along with a general trend toward developing countries. Kwon Soa reports. China became the top destination for foreign direct investment last year,... according to the latest report by the UN Conference on Trade and Development. This is the first time it′s topped the United States since 2003. Foreign businesses invested over 1-hundred-27 billion U.S. dollars into China last year, a 3-billion-dollar rise from the previous year. The U.S., on the other hand, saw investments plunge to 86 billion dollars... from over 2-hundred-30 in 2013. That put the U.S. in third behind China and Hong Kong, followed by Singapore, Brazil and the UK. The U.S. was the only developed country in the top five. The UN conference′s director of investment and enterprise, James Zhan, says China′s performance is attributed to its steady economic growth. He added there have been changes in the investment areas from manufacturing toward the service sector... and from labor-intensive fields to tech-intensive ones. And investors are generally shifting away from developed economies to developing ones, with foreign direct investment in developing economies having doubled since the 2008 global financial crisis. Asia alone has accounted for 15 percent of the inflow last year,... the highest amount ever. Although Korea′s FDI inflow has been among the bottom 7 out of 8 Asian countries for six years, according to a report from last year, the foreign direct investment amount pledged to Korea reached a record high of 19 billion U.S. dollars last year, ...with most investments coming from the EU. And on a report on foreign direct investment potential, Korea ranked fourth out of 177 countries. Kwon Soa, Arirang News.

Foreign Direct Investment
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-tips/foreign-direct-investment Foreign Direct Investment By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com Follow the money is age old advice for knowing why something is happening. In this case we would like to follow the money that goes into foreign direct investment. Foreign direct investment is done by folks with lots of money and the intention to stay on course and make a profit. If you are looking for offshore investment ideas, take a look at where foreign direct investment goes year after year after year. There have been changes afoot regarding where foreign direct investment is going. A very useful reference in this regard is the just published United Nations study, World Investment Report 2013. We have used 2007 and 2012 as bookend comparison years as 2007 was just before the onset of the worst recession in three quarters of a century and 2012 is the most recent year reported. Of note is that direct foreign investment has fallen in the large majority of nations but there are exceptions that should help guide investors with their fundamental analysis of where to put their money in the years ahead. First take a look at the data and then read about foreign direct investment. Foreign Direct Investment Comparison of 2007 and 2012 In Billions of USD Taken from the United Nations World Investment Report 2013 Nation 2007 2012 European Union 859 323 UK 200 71 France 96 37 Germany 80 67 North America, incl. Mexico363 408 Canada 117 54 USA 216 329 Mexico 31 26 Japan 23 123 China 84 84 China, Hong Kong 62 83 South Korea 9 33 India 25 9 South Africa 6 4 Russian Federation 57 51 Brazil 35 -3 The largest gain in foreign direct investment on our chart is in the USA followed closely by Japan (113 billion to 100 billion). As a percentage increase Japan out performs everyone with an increase of more than 400%. Other significant performers are South Korea with a more than 200% increase in foreign direct investment and Hong Kong with a twenty-five percent increase. It is significant that the BRICS nations which were thought to be ready to move up economically lost as a group. China stayed put at $84 Billion. Russia fell from $57 Billion to $52 Billion and South Africa fell from $6 Billion to $4 Billion. Brazil fell off the charts going from $35 Billion in direct foreign investment to a negative $3 Billion because investors are taking money out of the country! Direct Foreign Investment: What Is It and Why Do It? In general, foreign direct investment includes mergers and acquisitions, the building of new facilities, reinvestment of profits earned overseas and cross border loans within offshore operations. Basically companies invest offshore because they expect to make a profit over the long term. Because of the long timeline needed to research new projects and develop them, this sort of investment is typically well thought out. Reasons to invest offshore aside from expected profits include low taxes, tax holidays of the twenty-five year or longer variety, preferential tariffs, investment loan subsidies, free land or land subsidies, R&D support, proximity to profitable markets and more. Can You Follow the Money and Make a Profit? There are some useful lessons to be learned from reading the results of the World Investment Report 2013. A lot of the hype about Brazil and the rest of the BRICS nations was largely that, just hype. Brazil is attached at the hip to China and when events in China trigger the next big stock market crash Brazil will suffer. Money is going where there is economic, social and political stability, high end technology, democracy instead of dictatorship and nations that are interested in getting foreign investment instead of driving it away. Hong Kong is preferred over China because of the democratic residual from British colonial days. Japan is in an economic resurgence and Korea is largely keeping pace. The USA remains the most economically open economy and thus benefits the most from direct foreign investment during troubled times. When you decide where to put your money look for growing economies and economic sectors, tax advantages to your investment in a given economy and political stability so that the next government does not decide to confiscate your investment. http://youtu.be/pmqXFPWG87s

China’s Foreign Investment Regulation Reform - Key Updates and Analysis
The foreign investment regulation reform in China has been progressing significantly in recent years and a number of major steps have been taken. In September 2013, China opened a Pilot Free Trade Zone (FTZ) in Shanghai and issued several versions of the negative list regulating foreign investment in the zone since then. In 2014 the Chinese government released the draft of the new Foreign Investment Law and the new Foreign Investment Guidance Catalogue was published this year. Meanwhile, the Shanghai Pilot FTZ extended to Pudong district and new FTZs have been approved for Guangdong,Tianjin and Fujian. In addition, China has also been negotiating with the US and the EU for new investment treaties, which are expected to liberalise more industrial sectors for foreign investors. In this context, the EU SME Centre and the European Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC) will host a webinar to help European SMEs understand better how this reform will affect their business in China. In this webinar, you will learn: • General development of the foreign investment controls reform; • Recently liberalised sectors in the FTZs and the new Foreign Investment Catalogue; • Draft Foreign Investment Law: Good news and bad news; • Shanghai FTZ: A success or a failure? • New FTZs: Do they matter? • The future EU – China investment agreement: What’s in it for me?

Korea unveils plan to boost foreign investment
The Korean government is aiming to lure more foreign direct investment to boost the economy,... and is promising a better climate for investment and quality of life improvements. Kim Min-ji reports. The Korean government on Thursday unveiled a set of measures to draw more foreign direct investment to the nation, in a bid to spur economic growth by boosting production and creating jobs. The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy's blueprint includes a relaxation of regulations on foreign investment and incentives to encourage global companies to set up their headquarters in Korea. First, the goverment plans to ease and clarify foreign investment regulations. Many economists have pointed out that one of the biggest obstacles to foreign investment to Korea is the maze of confusing regulations on overseas investors. The government also plans to encourage global enterprises to establish regional headquarters and research and development centers in Korea. The blueprint also includes a series of incentives for foreign investors, including quality of life improvements. Finally, the government also plans to map out strategies to attract more foreign investment in the future. Although Korea has seen the amount of foreign direct investment jump in recent years,... the country is still far behind other global players. In 2012, foreign direct investment in Korea came to 147 billion U.S. dollars,... far below the U.S., which had 3-point-9 trillion dollars,... and Britain at 1-point-3 trillion. In addition, Korea's foreign direct investment in terms of GDP is the lowest in the OCED. FDI accounted for just 12-point-7 percent of GDP in 2012. That puts Korea second to last among the 34 OECD countries,... and far below top-ranking countries such as Luxembourg, Ireland and Britain. But with the newly announced plan, Korea is now aiming to become one of the world's top 10 investment destinations in the coming years. Kim Min-ji, Arirang News.

The founders of Ireland Gateway to Europe (Sigmar Recruitment, MKO Partners, The FKM Group and ByrneWallace) hosted Ireland's First 360 Degree FDI Stakeholder Focus Group in The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin on September 26th. The IDA firmly believes that the success of their Horizon 2020 strategy depends on an unprecedented level of collaboration from all stakeholders in the Irish economic eco-system both private and public sector. Taking these words to heart, the founders of Ireland; Gateway to Europe organised this FDI Focus Group as a means for the private sector to give their input into how to attract FDI to Ireland. Moderated by a very entertaining George Hook, the morning began with an array of distinguished speakers including; Minister Sean Sherlock (Minister of State for Research and Innovation), Chris Hickey (President, Total Defense), Barry O'Leary (CEO, IDA Ireland), Louise Phelan (VP EMEA, PayPal), Adrian McGennis (Founder, Gateway To Europe) and Frank Keane (Founder, Gateway To Europe), all discussing the importance of FDI and the role we all play in attracting it to Ireland. Following this, our 50 distinguished attendees, made up of some of Ireland's leading CEOs from both the private and public sector were broken into groups to offer their thought leadership on how the private sector can support FDI in Ireland. Using these ideas a report of recommendations will be published in the coming weeks.
