Foreign ownership

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Foreign ownership refers to the complete or majority ownership/control of a business or resource in a country by individuals who are not citizens of that country, or by companies whose headquarters are not in that country.

Though foreign direct investment is usually appreciated, some nations see excessive foreign ownership as a problem, and might take actions against it. France is a prime example.[1]
