About the Event

On February 5-8th, we held our seventh annual meeting in association with the Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA). The meeting brought together over 120 researchers and officials from 20 African and 6 international countries to discuss the ICTD’s research agenda.

The Commissioner General of the RRA, Pascal Ruganintwali, opened the meeting on behalf of the Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Dr. Uzziel Ndagijimana. Watch him open the meeting below:


The meeting, on the theme “What next for tax research in Africa?” covered a range of topics including taxation and accountability, the use of technology in tax administration, and the taxation of multinational business, wealth, property, and the extractive industries. On the 8th, the ICTD hosted its second African Tax Administration Research Day, with presentations of research by officials from Ghana, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, and Kenya. See the full meeting programme here.
