Assorted Conferences

Taxation, state building and capacity development in Africa” -28-29 August in Pretoria

At the end of two days those present, reached some laudable resolutions including:

* that the domestic tax base is a key mechanism for developing countries to escape aid or single resource dependency.
* that effective tax systems can reinforce government legitimacy through promoting accountability of governments to tax-paying citizens, effective state administration & good public financial management.
