Government may protect strategic companies

The government approved legislation giving it the right to ban non-EU investors from acquiring over 25% in a Slovak company if it considers the transaction risky. This would expand restrictions that the state put in place last year in response to Russia’s Sberbank trying to gain influence in Slovenské elektrárne. In the case of investments that could affect the basic functions of the state and its security, the state will review investments of just 10%. Not only the initial investment will be reviewed, but also an increase to 20-50%. Companies will be able to request a background check on themselves before investing.
