Orgalime believes that the European market needs to remain open to foreign direct investment, considering its positive impact on growth and employment. We question the need for a second layer of investment screening at European level and believe that the European Commission underestimates the negative effects such a legislation would entail in the long run, namely an erosion of companies’ freedom to invest in “critical technologies” such as robots, semiconductors and dual-use good, leading to an overall decrease of investments in such technologies.
