Staff Working Document published by the European Commission in March 2019, which offers an overview of the foreign direct investment situation in the European Union (EU).
This report is the first of its kind in terms of the detailed company level data used. It confirms a continuous rise in foreign company ownership in key sectors in the EU and an increase in investments from emerging economies. The document provides an overview of the origin of foreign investments, sectoral and geographical distribution and characteristics of foreign-owned companies in the European Union.
The report is a follow-up to a Communication published in September 2017 by the European Commission. It also aims to illustrate the need for effective implementation of the latest policy relating to investment screening.
