Formal comments of the EDPS on the Proposal for a Regulation establishing a framework for screening of foreign direct investments into the European Union.
Finance & Economy
The financial crisis has emphasised the need to harmonise rules on the functioning of financial markets, a crucial source of financing in today´s economy.
