Reforming the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States
 
01:19:25
For decades, the U.S. has strongly encouraged foreign direct investment, with both Democratic and Republican administrations offering consistent support. Recently, however, increased investment by China, including in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, and quantum computing has caused concern among U.S. national security regulators. To address this, the U.S. has implemented an increasingly rigorous national security investment clearance regime, which has been administered by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Congress—with strong bipartisan and White House support—is now gearing up for a substantial reform of CFIUS and expects to vote on these reforms in August to help modernize and strengthen the regime. Supporters of the reform efforts have made it clear that strategic competition with China is at the very core of the reform. On July 31, Hudson Institute hosted a panel to discuss the drivers, prospects, and implications of CFIUS reform. The panel was moderated by Hudson Institute Visiting Senior Fellow Mario Mancuso, and included the American Enterprise Institute’s Derek Scissors; Organization for International Investment President and CEO Nancy McLernon; and Managing Director at Beacon Global Strategies Michael Allen.

Putting FIRRMA into Practice: What CFIUS Reform Means for Foreign Investment in the United States
 
02:13:07
On August 13 President Trump signed into law the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA), the first reform of the screening process for foreign investment in the United States in over a decade. The law, which updates operations of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), will be implemented against the backdrop of potential threats to national security posed by new and emerging technologies; a rising suspicion of the motivations behind foreign investment by strategic competitors; and a global economic environment characterized by increased tensions and tit-for-tat retaliation. Many questions around FIRRMA’s implementation remain, especially about how the new regulations will be written and implemented. Notably, enforcing agencies will have to decide what technologies will be subject to heightened scrutiny and control; whether certain countries will be exempted from this process; and if and how sensitive information provided in the context of CFIUS reviews will be shared with allies. Officials will also have to balance national security concerns with maintaining an open and welcoming investment environment in the United States. Please join the CSIS Simon Chair in Political Economy on the afternoon of Tuesday, September 25 for keynote remarks by Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), follwed by an expert panel discussion exploring the key open issues from FIRRMA and how the U.S. foreign investment and export control regimes will evolve. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to our channel: http://cs.is/2dCfTve CSIS is the world's #1 defense and national security think tank.

Foreign Investment and National Security: Does CFIUS Need Expanded Powers?
 
01:36:31
The policies, rules, and business norms that worked in the past for export control and foreign investment into the U.S. may no longer be adequate to manage the challenge U.S. firms presently face from managed economies. This is particularly true in the IT sector, where nations are developing well-financed strategies to create a domestic industry intended to displace U.S. and other foreign suppliers. The long-term viability of the managed economy model is an open issue, but in the near or mid-term, it creates new risks for U.S. companies and, potentially, for national security. CSIS will host a discussion on the role of foreign investment in strategic competition with managed economies. Panelists will discuss the impact of national industrial policies on the international markets, and how U.S. policy and investment strategies might adapt to foster innovation, mitigate national security risks, and level the playing field for economic competition.
Investment Security in the 21st Century
 
01:16:45
Increasing foreign investments have prompted concerns over U.S. national security. In September, President Trump blocked his first Chinese acquisition of an American company, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation. Can the Trump Administration continue to balance both U.S. national security interests while maintaining the United States as a leading destination for foreign investment? More investments are reviewed by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. every year. What reforms to the committee are needed? How can we continue to encourage foreign investment in the United States? And how is the international community responding to their own investment and security questions? Join us as our distinguished panel considers these difficult questions at the intersection of economics and security.

CFIUS Reform: Will the Bill Make a Difference?
 
01:15:33
Please join us for a timely discussion on the powers of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), and its potential increase in scope if a bill on foreign investments passes Congress. The current bill is designed to expand CFIUS' powers in overseeing foreign investments with the potential to compromise national security. Particularly it is aimed at reducing foreign acquisition of sensitive U.S. technologies and intellectual property, a threat coming mainly from China. Last year, CSIS hosted a discussion examining if CFIUS needs expanded powers. Our speakers will revisit this topic and assess what differences, if any, this bill will make in the ability of CFIUS to manage the flow of key technologies out of the U.S. This event is made possible through general support from CSIS. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to our channel: http://cs.is/2dCfTve CSIS is the world's #1 defense and national security think tank.

U.S. Investment Rules To Get Tougher Soon
 
00:59
Reuters reports that as of November 10, investors in 27 industries will come under tougher scrutiny. This as an inter-agency panel led by the U.S. Treasury Department begins tightening foreign investment rules as part of a pilot program. The panel is called Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. It reviews mergers and stock purchases to ensure that they do not harm national security. It was strengthened by legislation in the National Defense Authorization Act and signed into law in August. Investments in 27 industries, such as telecommunications and semiconductors, will be required to be reported to CFIUS. This if the foreign investor’s role would allow access to non-public information or afford the power to nominate a board member or make other substantial decisions. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/reuters/topNews/~3/7Ri7arYfHZk/tougher-u-s-investment-rules-to-get-soft-opening-next-month-official-idUSKCN1MK1IC http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit Business using http://wochit.com

CFIUS Landscape in 2018

To learn more about this webcast please visit our website: https://www.theknowledgegroup.org/webcasts/cfius-landscape-in-2018-and-beyond/ On November 8, 2017, the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA), a long-awaited bill aimed at modernizing the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) review and approval process, was finally introduced. Over the last years, the CFIUS has struggled to stay apace with the surge of foreign investment in the U.S. The new bill specifically directs the CFIUS to update regulations and to address national security concerns implicated in the acquisitions of sensitive U.S. technology by "countries of special concern". Under FIRRMA, CFIUS oversight would also be expanded to include certain joint ventures, minor-share investments in critical technology and infrastructure sectors, and real estate transactions near military facilities or other sensitive government facilities. FIRRMA is not the only legislative effort to revamp the CFIUS review process. The United States Foreign Investment Review Act, introduced on October 18, 2017, also proposed to review the economic impact of any foreign acquisition alongside the CFIUS national security review. Considering these legislative proposals, it is critical for U.S. and foreign companies to understand how CFIUS review process works and monitor any developments that might impact foreign investment in the U.S. In this webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview of the current developments in CFIUS review landscape and its implications to foreign investments in the U.S. They will offer practical guidance in light of these potential changes.

AMERICAN ELITES ARE SELLING TECH ADVANCEMENTS TO CHINA
 
03:22
CFIUS (The Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States) has been SELLING AMERICAN TECH ADVANCEMENTS TO CHINA FOR YEARS. CFIUS is charged with making sure that foreign acquisitions of American firms do not present a threat to U.S. national security. CFIUS, in theory, could be a valuable tool to curb Chinese investments in America, a central concern for the Trump administration, but those who have followed and worked with the committee see the CFIUS process faltering. “I don’t know who’s in charge of CFIUS,” said Derek Scissors, a China expert American Enterprise Institute who regularly works for the committee. “I haven’t heard about CFIUS in any systematic fashion. I’ve seen no strategy or cohesion in the Trump administration” when it comes to running the committee. In the past, CFIUS has found itself in the middle of controversies over foreign acquisitions of American companies. In 2006, the committee approved a deal that would have shifted management of six American ports to DP World, a state-owned Dubai company seeking to manage some terminal operations. The House of Representatives later rejected the transfer because it would have given oversight of important American infrastructure to an Arab country. But in recent years, as Chinese investment in American companies has increased, its most high-profile cases have involved Beijing. Administration officials have recently indicated that might like to see CFIUS strengthened. Administration officials have said they want the ability to more specifically target transactions from Russia and China. Defense Secretary James Mattis recently told the Senate Armed Services Committee that CFIUS is out of date and that change is needed to recognize China’s interest in American technology. “It needs to be updated to deal with today’s situation,” Mattis told lawmakers earlier this month. Similarly, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said at a Wall Street Journal-hosted event that CFIUS was “weak” in some areas, and the process needed to be strengthened to focus on critical technologies, like semiconductors. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has also talked about wanting to strengthen CFIUS. Yet attorneys and former officials see a more fundamental weakness in CFIUS in the lack of staffing. The committee has nine members, including the secretaries of commerce, defense, energy, homeland security, state, and treasury; the attorney general; the U.S. trade representative; and the director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy. The last position is unfilled, as are many of the lower-level political appointees in other departments who would normally be involved in CFIUS. Key positions, like the assistant secretary of the treasury for international markets and development, remain vacant; President Donald Trump has nominated Heath Tarbert for the position, but he’s yet to be confirmed. The problem, according James Lewis, an expert on military technology at the Center for Security and International Studies, is that the positions needed to move cases along have yet to be appointed. “There is no one between the committee and the secretary,” Lewis said. 👉 Steve Hilton of "The Next Revolution" 👉 From foreignpolicy.com ...

CFIUS Reform: Balancing Security And Growth

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) is tasked with reviewing the national security implications of foreign investments. CFIUS reviews mergers, acquisitions, or other transactions that could result in foreign control of U.S. companies. New efforts to reform this review process warrant an in-depth look at CFIUS and how it can be improved. Given the recent policy focus on promoting economic growth—embodied most notably in the tax reform legislation—policymakers and experts should consider how to balance potential national security threats with investments that spur growth.

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) assists the President in overseeing the national security aspects of foreign direct investment in the U.S. economy, and can deny a foreign purchase if they determine that it would threaten our safety. Modernizing the committee is crucial as we face increased interest from foreign buyers in land purchases near national security installations, investments in critical infrastructure such as power grids, and investments in critical technology like an avionics supplier.

CFIUS is a multi-agency committee responsible for reviewing foreign acquisitions of controlling interests in US businesses. As a result of FIRRMA, in addition to mergers, acquisitions and takeovers that confer controlling interest, CFIUS now has authority to review: Non-controlling investments if the US target is involved in critical infrastructure or critical technologies or maintains sensitive personal data of US citizens Changes in non-US investors’ governance rights Transactions involving real estate in close proximity to sensitive US government facilities, and Transactions structured to evade CFIUS jurisdiction FIRRMA also brings procedural changes, including longer periods for review and (as necessary) investigation of covered transactions, as well as situations in which (for the first time) transaction parties will be required to submit notifications to CFIUS. In this month's webinar, partner Jeremy Zucker analyzes the new considerations applicable to investors, sellers and targets, both foreign and domestic, in light of FIRRMA and the Trump Administration’s current approach to foreign investment.

Last year the country jumped into the top three of the world's investors for the first time. It was third behind Japan in the second spot and the number one - the US. Leading the charge are private companies, with the sovereign wealth fund the China Investment Corporation not far behind, using part of the government's huge foreign exchange reserves. It recently acquired a 10 percent stake in London's Heathrow Airport for 450 million pounds (534 million euros) Beijing has encouraged Chinese companies to "go international" with the result that foreign investment have risen from the equivalent of 52 billion euros in 2010 to 66.5 billion last year. Speaking at the China International Fair for Investment and Trade, Wang Yanguo, the deputy head of the country's International Chamber of Commerce for the Private Sector said: "Chinese investors' outbound investment used to focus on traditional industries, but now they've shifted their focus to both traditional and newly emerged industries. Such development momentum is very strong especially in the advanced manufacturing sector and high-tech industries." The Ministry of Commerce said overseas investment is set to grow 15 percent this year through deals like the $4.7 billion (3.5 billion euro) takeover of America's Smithfield Foods - the world's biggest pork producer. That will be the largest ever Chinese acquisition of a US company. It was just approval by the US Committee on Foreign Investment. The Ministry's Department of Outward Investment and Economic Cooperation said just over 79 percent of Chinese investors have made profits or not lost money on their foreign purchases. A report compiled jointly by the Ministry of Commerce, the National Bureau of Statistics and the State Administration of Foreign Exchange revealed the top destination for overseas Chinese investment last year was Hong Kong. The US rose to second place with $4.05 billion (3.05 billion euros)invested, surging 123.5 percent from 2011. At end of of 2012, Chinese companies employed 1.49 million staff overseas, about half foreign citizens, the report added.
