This workshop will address briefly the economic aspects of FDI in the EU and will examine how the EU treaties and other policies relate to FDI. We will look at possible limits to the exercise of the EU’s power resulting from WTO commitments. We will then examine how screening is currently being done in selected EU Member States as well as in the US under CIFIUS, before turning to the European Commission proposal. We will hear how EU businesses and non-EU investors are, or may be, reacting to the current and proposed future screening. The workshop will conclude with a panel discussion and Q&A session.
