Tax in Developing Countries: Increasing Resouces for Development

This is the first evidence session for the Committee’s inquiry into taxation in developing countries. It provides an opportunity for Members to examine the complex background to this issue, and to begin to question what DFID can do in this area.

The International Development Committee is appointed by the House of Commons to examine the expenditure, administration and policy of the Department for International Development and its associated public bodies. The Committee also takes an interest in the policies and procedures of the multilateral agencies and non-government organisations to which DFID contributes.

The Committee is currently looking into Tax in Developing Countries and Increasing Resources for Development
