TRADE AND NATIONAL SECURITY: THE ROLE OF CFIUS ON INVESTMENT
This discussion will focus on the changing role of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to safeguard national security issues, while still ensuring fair and effective foreign direct investment. Our panel will cover the role of CFIUS in managing risks to America’s economic development and national security interests through the investment lens. Discussion will include focus on the emerging role of China as a competitor and an investor. Our panelists Nazak Nikakhtar from Wiley Rein and Antonia Tzinova from Holland & Knight will not only talk about the process of CFIUS, but also the impact it has on companies and things to consider for investment promotion. This interactive discussion will bridge the gap of trade, investment, and national security.
