It is vital to be able to avoid certain pitfalls and to not run afoul of the laws of the country of interest. It is not the case that a would be investor is required to be a master or an expert in the regulatory and compliance laws and practices of another country, but a working knowledge of key regulatory and compliance issues is essential.
