Media Advisory - After Nexen-CNOOC: Is Canada's Investment Policy on the Right 
Track? 
CALGARY, Dec. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - The fallout of the 2012 Nexen-CNOOC deal was 
revamped federal policy around foreign state-owned enterprises investing in 
Canadian businesses. Now, these sorts of deals will only be approved under 
exceptional circumstances. Has the federal government got it right? Are there 
better alternatives out there? 
Media are invited to a conference hosted by The School of Public Policy that 
will bring together leading experts, practitioners and policy makers in the 
areas of foreign direct investment and state-owned enterprises. The event will 
feature rigorous discussion around this important policy area with 
far-reaching consequences on the Canadian economy.
