The UNU World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland, will host a policy seminar on “Tax and Development — Setting the Agenda” on 1 November 2016.
This half-day event will focus on the crucial issue of taxation in development efforts; it will cover what we currently know while considering what we should know in the future to implement good tax policies in developing countries. It will place tax revenues in context with other funding sources, and links tax revenues with private sector development. Key issues in data access and reliability will be reviewed, especially in relation to illicit financial flows. The seminar will finish with examining linkages between managing revenue flows and governance, with a particular reference to extractive industries.
For registration and more information, see the event announcement on the UNU-WIDER website.
