5th LAC Tax Policy Forum 16-17 June 2015, Costa Rica
The fifth LAC Tax Policy Forum will build on the dialogue launched in Panama in 2010, continued in Colombia in 2012, in Uruguay in 2013 and in Mexico in 2014, on key fiscal drivers for inclusive and sustainable economic growth for the region.
The LAC Fiscal Initiative is an OECD programme that is aiming to improve its taxation and public expenditure policies in LAC to support economic growth and income redistribution in the region.
The programme is delivered through a regional forum for policy dialogue on fiscal issues (the LAC Tax Policy Forum), where senior fiscal policy officials of LAC countries engage with experts from the OECD and other regional organisations.
This dialogue is supported by the development of internationally comparable data, capacity building workshops and analytical papers that complement fiscal policy discussions. A third line of work consists of assisting countries with the design and implementation of fiscal reform measures.
