One of the defining features of the EU is its open economy, considered to be one of the fundamental pillars supporting Europe’s high level of socioeconomic development. As a result, the EU has always been very receptive to foreign direct investment and its Member States actively compete among themselves to attract such investment. This positive vision of foreign investment as an engine of economic growth is so widely held that only 12 of the 28 Member states have established mechanisms for supervising (and potentially rejecting) foreign investment on the grounds of national security.
