Improving trust in tax to build a better world: looking beyond G20

Date: Tuesday September 13, 2022 | Time: 9:00AM – 9:45AM EDT (COMPLETED)

Global megatrends and challenges, exacerbated by the pandemic, have highlighted the importance of creating a more sustainable and fairer world. And this is particularly true for developing economies, where a constellation of new challenges ranging from the ongoing climate crisis, demographic transitions, to the urgent need to resume progress on reducing poverty, puts an additional pressure on governments to find responsible ways to spend more, while at the same time facing an unprecedented trust crisis. It’s a vicious circle: the lack of trust threatens the key resource enabling any government across the world to meet today’s challenges – in other words tax revenues - , and without effective tax systems, governments cannot deliver on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
