Key stakeholders in Africa’s tax sector are set to meet in Ghana to discuss domestic resource mobilisation and illicit financial flows issues in Africa.
The 11th Pan-African Conference on Illicit Financial Flows and Taxation (PAC) conference, scheduled for November 22, 2023, will provide a platform for tax stakeholders to explore ways in which African countries can take the lead on international conversations that are beginning to have direct implications on issues relating to domestic resource mobilisation and illicit financial flows.
The conference is organised by Tax Justice Network Africa (TJNA) and The African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF).
A statement issued by the Tax Justice Network Africa and African Tax Administration Forum and copied to the Ghanaian Times in Accra yesterday, said the conference would bring s together officials working on tax issues from Pan-African Organisations, tax administrations, ministries of Finance, civil society organisations, parliamentarians, and academia/researchers from Africa and beyond, under the theme “Making Global Tax Governance Work for Africa.
“The conference is a platform that will enable the attendees to contribute to the development of a common African position on key international conversations that affect African countries’ efforts to raise domestic resources. It is also a platform to identify actions and solutions for actors such as African governments, parliamentarians, civil society organisations, the private sector and other policy players that are key in mobilising domestic resources within the context and will present the opportunity to grow partnerships and collaborations between the different actors,” it said.
