Категории иностранных инвестиций и иностранного инвестора в национальном законодательстве и международных договорах государств – членов Евразийского экономического союза
This article discusses the notion of categories of foreign investments and foreign investor in the law of the EAEU member states through the prism of three levels of legal regulation – national legislation, bilateral and multilateral international treaties. The national legislation of the EAEU member states that regulates foreign investments, although is based on commonly used legal structures and instruments, within the framework of the conceptual apparatus can differ significantly in the recipient state of the foreign investments and in the state of origin of the foreign investor, which requires close attention and detailed study of the regulatory legal acts of each EAEU member state. Along with the rules governing foreign investments and the status of a foreign investor under Eurasian law, the EAEU member states apply the rules of bilateral agreements on the promotion and protection of investments that are in force not only between them, but also with the third states. In addition, there is also a multilateral international treaty for the four EAEU member states, namely the Moscow Convention of the CIS. This circumstance is due to the participation of Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan simultaneously in three integration processes – within the framework of the EAEU, the CIS and the SCO.
