How to Reform the Broken International Tax System.
Sunday 12 July, H 17:00, Sheraton Hotel, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
With less than a week until the Third UN Conference on Financing for Development (FFD) in Addis Ababa, we’d like to ensure you reserve time in your schedule for what is set to be the hottest live debate on one of the stickiest issues of the FFD agenda: how to reform the broken international tax system.
A full line up of global heavyweights – including Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz, Professor Jose Antonio Ocampo, Pascal Saint-Amans of the OECD, and Jane McCormick of KPMG – ready to debate what needs to change in the way corporations are taxed if the world is going to be able to finance the post-2015 agenda. For those interested in domestic resource mobilisation or more generally concerns of global governance and inequality, this Debate and following Policy Dialogue should not be missed. Complementing the panel, will be the rest of the Commissioners that make up ICRICT (Independent Commission on Reform of International Corporate Taxation), who, along with Professors Stiglitz and Ocampo, will be talking about their recent groundbreaking report on how to overhaul the way corporations are taxed.
