Opening Remarks by His Excellency Ambassador Munir Akram, President of the Economic and Social Council (pdf)

International tax reforms and tax transparency standards through an open, inclusive, and legal instrument with universal participation has been widely supported. To this end, I endorsed the recommendation of the FACTI Panel for discussions aiming at an agreement on a UN Tax Convention. Since there is no single global inclusive forum for international tax cooperation at the international level, these discussions should also lead to the establishment of a universal intergovernmental tax body under the auspices of the United Nations.
