On 9 March 2022, Study Hub for International Economic Law and Development (SHIELD) at the Faculty of Law University of Copenhagen and Magnusson Denmark will hold a lecture about the new Danish Foreign Investment Screening Regime.
Date & Time: 9 March, 16:00-17:30 Danish time
Location: University of Copenhagen, South Campus, Faculty of Law, Room 4A.0.56
In 2021, Denmark introduced one of the most vigorous foreign investment screening laws yet implemented across Europe. This lecture will cover what kind of transactions that are now restricted, who will be considered foreigners under the Danish legislation, what is now deemed “critical” and also the process for assessing whether the FDI (foreign direct investment) rules apply as well as the filing and approval procedure.
The lecture will also look at how the new legislation will affect Chinese FDI to Denmark at a time where European scrutiny of Chinese investment into critical sectors and infrastructure is on the rise.
The lecture is open for all, but registration is required. Sign up at
