- The U.S. has indicated it intends to more aggressively review and regulate foreign investment in industries that may implicate national security via the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), an interagency committee headed by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
- While CFIUS is largely a voluntary regime, it is important for foreign investors to consider the potential implications of an investment in, or the purchase of, a U.S. company.
