Forex News

German Economy Minister spokeswoman reported that Germany is planning to find out if a foreign investor purchases at least 15% of certain German defense-related or security-linked technology companies. She said: "We have suggested (a threshold of) 15 percent in preparatory talks with other ministries".

The announcement was based on China’s switch to strategically important technology firms in Germany and other EU states.
