    Factbox - Europe's plans to protect prized assets from foreign buyers

    The purchase last year of German robotics maker Kuka (KU2G.DE) by Chinese company Midea raised concerns that China was gaining too much access to key technologies while shielding its own companies from foreign takeovers. State-owned ChemChina's $43 billion (£32.4 billion) purchase of Swiss pesticides and seeds group Syngenta also increased pressure in Europe to curb foreign acquisitions in strategically important sectors. European Union leaders in June agreed to consider screening investments by state-owned Chinese firms, and France, Germany and Italy have backed the idea of allowing the EU to block Chinese investments.

    Unilever shifts UK food jobs to Rotterdam ‎in PG Tips merger

    Unilever (NYSE: UL - news) is shifting scores of UK-based jobs to the Netherlands as part of a plan to create a new global headquarters for brands such as PG Tips and Magnum (BSE: MAGNUML.BO - news) ice cream. Sky News has learnt that the Anglo-Dutch consumer goods giant, which saw off a £115bn takeover bid from Kraft Heinz (Swiss: KHC.SW - news) this year, has begun a consultation with approximately 140 of its UK workers about the relocation of their roles. The jobs being moved represent a small fraction of Unilever's ‎British workforce of more than 7,000, but the news will nevertheless attract interest because of the extent to which issues such as job security were raised during Kraft Heinz's brief interest in a deal.
