Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Investors need clarity on Canada’s foreign takeover rules, said Felix Chee, China Investment Corp.’s chief representative in Canada.

Chee told a conference in Ottawa today that the lack of clarity on foreign investment rules benefits the Canadian government. Canada is reviewing the $15.1 billion bid by Cnooc Ltd. for Nexen Inc., a Calgary-based energy producer. Chee said Cnooc’s 100 percent bid for Nexen makes approval more difficult. Canada reviews most foreign takeovers to make sure they provide a net benefit to the country.
