Tax Administrations in Africa: New Approaches for a New Era?
About the event
The WU Global Tax Policy Center at the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law, WU is delighted to invite you to the 31st Tax Policy Fireside Chat (FSC), which will feature the ICTD’s Professor Mick Moore on September 14, 2021 and will take place from 14:00 to 15:30 CET Vienna time via online link.
During the Tax Policy Fireside Chats, Prof. Jeffrey Owens and leading players in the field of tax policy discuss issues which are currently preoccupying governments, business and civil society.
These chats enable a wide range of people to participate in policy debates providing input from their various fields of interest, in front of a live studio audience. The one and half hour informal discussions focus on topics which are not too technical but which are controversial!
The audience is encouraged to put questions to the speakers during each round.
The outcomes of the Fireside Chat are published by Tax Notes International.
