The current political climate will definitely make some M&A activity much more difficult. Take for example the Chinese acquisition of the German Kuka Robotics. The acquisition of a technology leader within the German Mittelstand by a large Chinese conglomerate was possible in the days when leading western nations were more upbeat on Chinese liberalization; however as the belief in the positive progression of Chinese liberalization has faded so has the acceptance for such deals.
