Affiliate event

Join Valerio Barbantini, Senior Advisor to the OECD, and HLS Senior Lecturer Stephen Shay for an informal discussion of the G20 and OECD’s efforts to encourage non-OECD countries to become members of the OECD Inclusive Framework so they can participate on an equal basis in international tax standard setting and implementation of BEPS. This represents an important change in architecture of institutions establishing international tax standards.

This event is being generously co-sponsored by the HLS Tax Program, the HLS Law and International Development Society and HLS TaxHelp.
