The C.D. Howe Institute published a new report on the Canadian Investment Canada Act and state-owned enterprises (SOEs): Speed Dating or Serious Courtship? Canada and Foreign State-Owned Enterprises.  Abstract:

“If Canada wants to benefit from Asia’s long-term growth potential, there is no getting around the need to do business, carefully, with state-owned enterprises (SOEs), according to a report released today by the C.D. Howe Institute.  In ‘Speed Dating or Serious Courtship? Canada and Foreign State-Owned Enterprises,’ author Daniel Schwanen discusses how Canada can address concerns about the potential impacts of investment by foreign SOEs in Canadian companies.”
