The Hungarian Government recently adopted Act no. LVII of 2018 on the Control of Investments Detrimental to the Interests of Hungarian National Security (the “Act”). Previously we wrote about a similar legislative proposal which aimed at establishing a similar control mechanism. However, the Act has a more sophisticated approach on the control and approval procedure […]
