From draft congressional legislation to a possible Executive Order, the potential for new U.S. Government restrictions on outbound U.S. investment in foreign countries represent a pivotal watershed for U.S. investors.
According to a January Report from the Rhodium Group, approximately 43 percent of U.S. Foreign Direct Investment in China during the past two decades could ultimately be covered by these recent “Reverse CFIUS” proposals – proposals that could fundamentally decouple the U.S. and global economies from a Chinese-led economic system.
Please join 4thly and Foley & Lardner for a panel discussion on how proposed “Reverse CFIUS” frameworks will impact investments from Silicon Valley – especially those involving investment targets in China and other global competitors. Key topics will include U.S. Government proposals to safeguard U.S. national security, protect essential supply chains, and prevent IP and technology transfers to potential adversaries. Panelists will also discuss the Biden Administration’s efforts to strengthen the U.S. economy by channeling future capital investments into key U.S. sectors – technology, life sciences, energy, and manufacturing.
