Foreign Investment in Australian Land
Regulation of foreign investment in Australia is a fundamental concern of the government and an issue of increasing importance in Western Australia. The primary decision-maker is the Treasurer, who administers the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Act 1975 and implements Australia's Foreign Investment Policy on the advice of the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB). Commercial Property Acquisitions For developed commercial property, foreign persons must apply for approval to purchase, or take an interest in, any property valued at $54 million or more. If the real estate is heritage-listed, a $5 million threshold applies instead. Significant exception exists for New Zealand and United States investors, who only need to apply for approval for property valued at $1,078 million or more. Residential and Vacant Land Acquisitions Approval must be obtained for the acquisition by foreign investors of vacant land and residential property, regardless of the value of the real estate. Recently, there has been increased public concern that foreign investors are becoming more active in Australia's property market. On 19 March 2014, the Treasurer formally asked the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Economics to inquire into and report on foreign investment policy as it applies to residential real estate. The results of this inquiry are not yet available. Rural Land Rural land is defined as land used wholly and exclusively for carrying on a commercial business of primary production. A foreign investor only requires approval to buy an interest in a primary production business where the total assets of the business exceed $248 million (or $1,078 million for New Zealand and United States investors). In 2012, the FIRB included an annexure to the Foreign Investment Policy entitled "Policy Statement: Foreign Investment in Agriculture". The government does screen all foreign investment and the government is committed to ensuring on a case-by-case basis that investments do not adversely affect the sustainability of Australia's national agricultural resources. The policy for agricultural acquisitions is currently under review. The Opposition considers that the monetary thresholds are too high and it has proposed a review of the threshold to $15 million for purchases of foreign land. Leaker Partners is closely following this issue. While the government recognises that foreign investment has many benefits, it also acknowledges community concerns surrounding foreign ownership. Accordingly, the government has adopted a case-by-case approach where a 'national interest test' is applied. If a proposal is deemed contrary to the national interest, it will not be approved. Note: As a general rule foreign government investors require FIRB approval. ------------------ This video and statement contains general legal advice only and is current as at 19 June 2014.

To learn more about the state of play of the Australian market: https://www.claytonutz.com/about/international-services/australian-market-the-state-of-play _________________________________________________ You can also find this video on our website https://www.claytonutz.com/knowledge/video/doing-business-in-australia-the-current-landscape-of-foreign-investment-review See more videos from Clayton Utz here https://www.claytonutz.com/videohub/ Follow us on Social Media https://www.linkedin.com/company/clayton-utz https://twitter.com/claytonutz Transcript In Australia at the moment the Government is encouraging foreign investors to notify the Government of potential transactions. One area we're seeing that operate quite a bit is foreign government investors and it surprises a lot of clients and a lot of offshore companies when there may be a foreign investor. Really at the end of the day the thresholds are quite low and particular private equity funds, infrastructure funds can often be caught, and it surprises them. For example, for a company from overseas if they've got more than 20% of their investor base from one country, even though they are not associated, but they may be foreign government instrumentalities such as pension funds and that can qualify them as a foreign government investor. The thresholds are also quite low and it can capture transactions where there is transactions happening overseas but there happens to be a relatively small piece of Australian assets involved. One way the Government is trying to deal with this lowering of the threshold for foreign government investors is through exemption certificates and this is particularly relevant for private equity funds, portfolio companies which are owned by private equity funds, infrastructure funds, and not what we would traditionally see as a straight government investor. This area is quite new and the Treasury and FIRB are still working through their policy guidelines. That will be an iterative process where Government is working with law firms, investment banks and other market participants to come up with some sensible rules. Some of the questions we are thinking about are how long will these certificates be given for. It looks maybe 4 years, not 5 years. Will they make a foreign government investor the equivalent of a non-foreign government investor for example will it just up the limit to 20%? Will there be no-go areas? Will tax laws be relevant here? So these are issues which are being worked through at the moment but over time we believe that there will be some sensible parameters to allow ordinary course transactions which are not affecting the national interest to be put through more smoothly.

U.S. Government Gains Expanded Power to Limit Foreign Investment
U.S. President Donald Trump Thursday met with the authors of a new law to restrict foreign investment based on security concerns, which gives the U.S. government greater power to limit foreign investment. Under the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA), a committee with close ties to the White House has expanded powers to limit foreign investments in real estate and in critical technologies and critical infrastructure-as well as big data. The new rules actually give the U.S. government more leeway to block foreign takeovers of U.S. companies for national security reasons. http://www.cctvplus.com/news/20180826/8088842.shtml#!language=1 Welcome to subscribe us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/NewsContent.CCTVPLUS Twitter: https://twitter.com/CCTV_Plus LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cctv-news-content Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cctvnewscontent/ Video on Demand: www.cctvplus.com If you are in demand of this video footage, please contact with our business development team via email: [email protected]

Foreign direct investment in Saudi Arabia: Riyadh Chamber of Commerce
Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry discusses Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). While foreign direct investment weakened to Saudi Arabia in 2013, the Kingdom remains the most attractive destination for foreign investment in the Arab world according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and "World Investment Report 2013." The FDI inflows slowed down by 25% in 2012 to USD 12.2 billion. Despite the slowdown Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry sees improved environment for the FDI. "Regarding FDI as well as local investment, had the economy been doing well and we have been doing fine, this will be more attractive for both local Saudi and international businesses; therefore, the future of the FDI in Saudi Arabia is promising. I also believe that SAGIA (Saudi Arabia's General Investment Authority) is doing its best in attracting foreign investments into the Kingdom. At the same time, the government injected huge amounts of funds into the market, which have created a good environment not only for local Saudi investors but also for non-Saudis who are interested in investing in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, I imagine the future is bright in this connection as the Saudi government encourages FDI and has already established SAGIA to look after investments, both internally and externally. I suppose foreign investment is a good indication of how smartly the government is tackling this issue, especially foreign investments, and attracting such assets into the country," said Dr. Mohammed H. Al Kathiri, Secretary-General of RCCI. "Six months ago, the Chamber has formed a committee and termed it the International Cooperation Committee. This committee has comprised several foreign investor CEOs from major companies investing in Saudi Arabia. It watches over obstacles facing those investors who invest in Saudi Arabia and contacts government agencies to facilitate procedures and remove such obstacles. This is essentially a direct support to foreign investors, knowing that all activities of the Chamber are streamlined to facilitate procedural processes and help the private sector in general, including foreign investors as well, to work in a friendly environment," he added.

Andrew Coyne on Canada's New Foreign Investment Rules
National Post columnist Andrew Coyne shares his thoughts on the political implications of the Canadian government's recent changes to foreign investment rules.
Putting FIRRMA into Practice: What CFIUS Reform Means for Foreign Investment in the United States
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.

What is Foreign Direct Investment? |Talking Economic Development with David Gray |Marketing Services
Why is FDI important? ProfileTree welcomed WAVTEQ Marketing Manager David Gray to not just explain the type of results achieved through this vital aspect of international business, but to outline his company's global work in this area. David also discussed his marketing experience and passed on some essential advice. He began by explaining WAVTEQ's specialism and their worldwide expertise. "WAVTEQ is the biggest FDI consultancy, data and technology company in the world currently. We have 80 full-time FDI consultants and 16 offices all over the globe. We have offices in the US, Europe, South Korea, India and our technology hub is in Cork. "These offices are strategically placed, so we can target companies who're interested in expanding overseas. "Our main clients are government clients, who we work with to try and attract more foreign investment. We have worked with over 300 government clients from around the globe and have helped them secure over fifty billion worth of Greenfeild investment projects since 2014." David went on to describe Foreign Direct Investment (FDI): "Basically it's when a company wants to invest in a foreign location, has business interest in a foreign location and wants to open up there. For example, Baker McKenzie expanded their office here [Northern Ireland] to 150 people." David explained how WAVTEQ deliver successful campaigns for clients around the world, pointing out that their 16 offices around the world are all strategic locations. This means WAVTEQ can meet with clients easily and deliver their FDI services more easily. "We're the leading provider in FDI products, we have a multitude of different products focused around FDI. One of our biggest products would be the incentives monitor as this allows companies to see what incentive packages are being awarded across the globe. They're able to compare different incentives from different regions. "We also have FDI accounting software and are also rolling out a CRM tool for investment promotion agencies. "We created a new tool after the aftermath of Brexit. We created a new tool called UK investment monitor, which tracks where UK companies are expanding domestically. This helps Government agencies and local enterprise partnerships within the UK to see which domestic companies are investing and in which regions." He also outlined some tips and tricks for future marketers and for marketing in 2019. "Any tips I would give to online marketers to succeed would be to be realistic and to set goals and objectives. I think you need to look at throughout the year, are there any big events happening?  You can then tailor your marketing efforts around these, make SMART objectives and plan effectively."

Foreign Policy: Crash Course Government and Politics #50
Today Craig finishes up our series on U.S. Government and Politics by talking about both the least and most important aspect of government: foreign policy. Foreign policy is important because it has the potential to affect the largest number of people, but at the same time, it tends to play a minimal role in our perception of the government (unless we’re at war). Foreign policy addresses diplomacy, security, human rights, economics, and the environment at a global scale, and we’re going to talk about how our government has approached each of these policies in the past and which it tends to hold most important. As with all things political, the decisions made in fulfilling these policies can be pretty controversial, especially when considering that the President often has the last word in these issues. We hope this series has helped you better understand the way the U.S. government works and hopefully encouraged you to participate in the political process - here or wherever you may live.

Referring to the commitment by Foxconn and Midea to invest in India, it said these investments are coming close on the heels of India's decision to implement the Goods and Services Tax (GST), the country's biggest tax reform since its independence in 1947. "The new tax regime is expected to give a boost to the 'Make in India' initiative because it is aimed at unifying various state and central taxes into a single tax system, thus laying the foundation for a common national market and improving India's manufacturing competitiveness," the article said. "In fact, since Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the 'Make in India' initiative in September, 2014, the Indian government has been making aggressive efforts in unifying the country as a whole, with the aim of building it into an attractive manufacturing destination for global businesses," it said.

India eases Defence Foreign investment requirements
The Indian government has further eased the administrative requirements for foreign investors in the country’s defence sector. The government-owned Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said in a recent notice that foreign defence companies will no longer require RBI approval to open in-country offices if they have won a contract or entered into a related agreement with a state entity such as a Defence Public Sector Undertaking (DPSU). “Approval of the Reserve Bank of India is not required in cases where government approval or license/permission by the concerned ministry/regulator has already been granted,” said the RBI notice. “In the case of … opening a project office relating to defence sector, no separate reference or approval of [the] government of India shall be required if the said non-resident applicant has been awarded a contract by/entered into an agreement with the Ministry of Defence or service headquarters or DPSU.” The new notice is one of several reforms intended to encourage defence investors in India in recent years, the most prominent of which was introduced in 2016 and allowed proposals to proceed through the “automatic route” – or without government approval – if the investment was equal to 49% or below of a company’s equity. Such investors are, however, required to notify the RBI about the proposal. Security clearance from the MoD is also required. Foreign direct investment (FDI) proposals in defence that require government approval feature those that exceed 49% of equity in a local entity. According to the rules, such proposals are also required to result in the transfers of “modern technology” to Indian industry. Guidelines introduced in 2017 also outlined new deadlines to accelerate the approval of FDI proposals that proceed through the government route.

India Plans Up To 74% Foreign Investment In Defence Technologies Without Approval
India plans to allow higher foreign investments in niche defence technologies under the automatic route as the world’s largest importer of arms and defence equipment looks to boost local manufacturing. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration aims to increase the foreign direct investment cap from the current 49 percent to 74 percent in such technologies, according to a draft Defence Production Policy 2018 released by the Ministry of Defence. As of now, anything over the existing limit is allowed on a case-to-case basis. India aims to be among the top five countries in aerospace and defence, the document said, seeking comments. The policy aims at reduced dependence on imports, and self-reliance in development and manufacturing of indigenous weapon systems. The government plans to increase the domestic production nearly threefold to Rs 1.7 lakh crore by 2025. The key focus, according to the draft, will be on: Fighter aircraft Medium lift and utility helicopters Warships Land combat vehicles Autonomous weapon systems Missile systems Gun systems Small arms Ammunition and explosives Surveillance systems Electronic warfare systems Communication systems Night fighting enablers Focus On Cyberspace And AI :: The government is looking to tap the Indian information technology sector to gain an edge in cyberspace and artificial intelligence. It has emerged as the fourth domain of warfare and India, with its leadership in IT can use this technology tilt to its advantage, the draft said. Licensing Regime :: The government will list platform and weapon systems being considered for procurement in the next 10 years to help private firms understand the opportunities. It will also simplify ‘Make-II’ process for private companies to enter defence production. To that end, it will liberalise the regime by allowing licenses in 30 days, pruning the no-go areas to a small ‘negative list’ for licensing. The government will also do away with ex ante, or forecast-based, capacity assessment except in critical projects. It will introduce earnest money deposits and performance guarantees as safeguards for others. Offset Regime :: The government proposes to set up an offsets ombudsman for resolving all such claims. Offsets—investments through a local partner to set up ecosystem of suppliers—would be investment linked. Taxation: The policy aims to rationalise taxes on import of capital goods for services and inputs for defence and aims to prevent inversion of taxes. Defence Industry Corridors :: The policy aims to build defence industry corridors in partnership with states and on existing production facilities to create an ecosystem of supply chains of small businesses and original equipment makers. The government will spend Rs 3,000 crore each to create a special entity for developing such corridors. Access To Testing Facilities :: India will provide access to its testing facilities to the private sector. It will also set up common testing facilities, contributing up to Rs 100 crore per testing facility. Exports :: India is looking at Rs 35,000 crore of exports by 2025. It will promote made-in-India products through government-to-government agreements and line of credit. The Indian offset partners would be encouraged to take up export of parts and accessories. Aerosopace :: The government proposes to set up National Aeronautical Commission for better coordination and sharing of information and technologies. It plans to set up an aeronautical university along with Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. by equally sharing the costs. It plans to transition automotive component manufacturers to aeronautical parts design and manufacturing. The government also plans to develop a civilian aircraft for 80-100 seats over the next seven years by leveraging the design and manufacturing capabilities developed in the country. Boost For HAL :: India wants to augment capacities to produce various platforms, including light combat aircraft, advance light helicopter, light combat helicopter, light utility helicopter and Dornier 228 for armed forces and exports.

What type of properties can foreign investors purchase in Australia? | Berman Buys
Website - https://www.bermanbuys.com.au FIRB - http://firb.gov.au "Hello and welcome back to daily buying tips, I’m Dean Berman from Berman Buys. Today were going to discuss what types of property foreign investors can purchase in Australia. You may think why are foreigners allowed to buy property in Australia? Isn’t it unfair for everyday Australians? After doing a bit of research on the area I actually think it’s an area where a decent amount of logic prevails. The reason foreigners can buy property according to the Foreign Investment Review Board or FIRB “is to increase Australia’s housing supply”. The theory goes that the money from overseas, will help build new properties locally. Without that money it would be hard to supply as many properties as we need, leading to upward pressure on prices. The flow on benefits are through the construction process “new jobs will be created which will help support economic growth for everyday Australians”. Effectively this money is helping companies to employ more people, who in turn can experience better wages and standards of living. Foreign investment also increases government revenue from “stamp duties” and “other taxes”. Here are some of the coolest findings on foreign investment: As foreign investment is used to supply more housing, it makes sense foreigners can’t purchase established residential property in Australia because it’s doing the opposite. This is why they can generally get an “exemption certificate” when purchasing off the plan property through a developer whose projects has more than 50 properties in a multi-level building, they can’t purchase house and land packages or townhouses. The only time foreigners can get approval for established property, when it’s for redevelopment and at least 2 dwellings are built for the one demolished, the foreigner has to have approval before entering into an unconditional contract though. Foreigners can buy vacant land for this same reason as they will be adding a house where there was none before, but need approval, the house needs to be built within 4 years to stop land banking. The approval fees increase with price. If a foreigner lives in an Australian property for more than 6 months in a year, they will need to pay a vacancy fee which is to encourage greater levels of rental stock in the market. Commercial property seems to be more relaxed, as foreigners can usually purchase commercial property without needing approval, if the value is generally below $266m. Large penalties apply for breaching foreign investment rules, ranging from a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars All in all foreign investment policy seems to make sense to me when the rules are followed." #foreigninvestment #firb
