Closely Held Companies Committee (Lead)
Asia Pacific Regional Forum


Join the Closely Held and Growing Business Enterprises Committee for a lively and interactive session on foreign direct investment (FDI). FDI has been growing in the Asia Pacific region in recent years, with increasing attention in the media and from politicians as a result. Particular sensitivities have developed around certain types of assets and purchasers and various jurisdictions have adopted safeguards to address these issues. This session will consider cutting-edge trends in FDI regulation, including practical measures to address these issues and reduce deal uncertainty.
