Morrison & Foerster partners Chuan Sun and Janet Xiao shared their views on the impact of tightening control by CFIUS on Chinese outbound investments in the International Financial News article “Chinese outbound investment goes “all the way to southeast”?” (Xizi, 2019)
Ms. Xiao said to International Financial News that the life science industry is an emerging field. Therefore, M&A transactions in the industry will not be affected by CFIUS reviews in the future. Mr. Sun said that in addition to the life science industry, countries in Southeast Asia and ones along the Belt & Road Initiatives, as well as industries that the government encouraged to invest in, will become the key focus in the future.
