The purpose of this Note is to assess the potential for successful business ventures in the C.S.F.R. in relation to the 1990 amendments to the Act. This Note will first discuss the needs and concerns of U.S. business persons who, until now, have been hesitant to join their Western European counterparts in establishing a business presence in the Eastern European marketplace. It will then analyze the Act and determine whether the 1990 amendments sufficiently remove traditional legal barriers to foreign equity investment in the C.S.F.R. Finally, this Note concludes that there are numerous economic and political measures, embodied in both U.S. and international institutions and legislation, which provide the prudent investor with sufficient security to initiate joint venture activity in the C.S.F.R.
