This could lead to increased international interest in direct investments in Swedish companies that are worth protecting. The Riksdag therefore urged the Government by way of an announcement, to promptly present a proposal for measures to make the examination of such investments possible.

The Government should, among other things, present proposals as soon as possible for legislative amendments that enable this. The Government should also promptly appoint the public agency that will serve as a contact in this area.

The announcement is based on a committee initiative. This means that the proposal has been introduced in a committee and is not based on a government bill or a private member's motion.
