These Regulations stipulate conditions that should be adhered to by the companies involved in the Scheme. The Regulations shall be named Foreign Exchange Management (Cross Border Merger) Regulations.

Members of public, including the stakeholders and experts in the area, are requested to offer their views and comments on the proposed Regulations. The comments may be sent latest by May 9, 2017 to email with the subject “Cross Border Mergers – Comments/Suggestions”.
