When: Wednesday, November 29th, 16h00-18h00 
Where: Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung EU Office, Rue du Taciturne 38, 1000 Brussels

The revelations of the Panama Papers and most recently of the Paradise Papers have fueled public discussion on the harmful impacts on the public sector in European and developing countries. In cooperation with Dietmar Köster, MEP, Member of the EP PANA Committee, the EU office of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung has invited the following speakers to discuss the harmful effects on European and developing countries which strongly rely on tax incomes and to explore policy responses:

Dereje Alemayehu, Chair, Coordination Committee, Global Alliance for Tax Justice, Kenia
Dick Forslund, Alternative Information & Development Centre (AIDC), South Africa
Erica Gerretsen, Head of Unit, Budget Support, Public Finance Management, Domestic Revenue Mobilisation, DG Devco, European Commission

You are welcome to attend this hopefully fruitful debate.
