In January of 2020, the U.S. Federal Government issued final rules fully implementing the new powers granted to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Effective February 13, 2020, the Committee started to exercise its expanded ability to review the national security implications of more foreign investments – in particular companies with ‘novel or advanced technology’ including biotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, quantum computing, and advanced materials.
