What do we mean by a "qualifying investment" in a host state?

Once a party demonstrates that it is a qualifying investor (as discussed in an earlier instalment), under an investment treaty or the foreign investment laws of a host state, the assessment turns to whether the party has a so-called "qualifying investment" in the host state. In this instalment, Jackwell Feris highlights that without an investment being deemed as a "qualifying investment" in a host state, a qualifying investor will not derive any protection for such investment under an investment treaty or under certain instances the foreign investment laws of the host state.
