Strengthening tax systems – policy and administration – is a key development priority, and a core part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) framework and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. Together they set a challenge to raise significant additional tax revenues, in fair and efficient ways.

In 2016 the IMF, the OECD, the United Nations and the World Bank Group, the leading international actors on tax, created the Platform for Collaboration on Tax as a central vehicle for their enhanced cooperation, enabling the development of common approaches, the delivery of joint outputs, and as a response to demands for a global dialogue on tax matters.

This event is an opportunity to hear from senior officials of the Platform organizations, who will discuss progress made, future plans, as well as the challenges and opportunities facing the international tax landscape, particularly in an increasingly digital economy.
