The Commission Publishes Regulation to Counter Economic Coercion
On 8 December 2020, the European Commission (“Commission”) published its proposal for a Regulation on the protection of the EU and its Member States from economic coercion by third countries (“proposed Anti-coercion Regulation”). The proposal aims to deter third countries from pressuring the EU or a Member State through trade or investment-related measures by empowering the Commission to strike back with a wide range of countermeasures. This Client Alert provides a first glance at the proposal and offers some initial comments.
