This session will take stock of recent years’ efforts to curb tax evasion and other illicit financial flows, including the follow-up to the Panama Papers, settlements with Swiss banks and other major cases, targeting of enablers of tax evasion constructs, and tax policy and administration related steps taken to prevent evasion. The presenters will provide different perspectives, highlighting their countries’ political, fiscal, and enforcement experiences. The questions posed to the panelists are: (i) What have we learned from recent years’ fight against international tax evasion; (ii) Will exchange of information be a game-changer; (iii) How do we ensure a truly international effort to combat tax evasion; and (iv) How do we strengthen the capacity in developing countries to ensure effective enforcement mechanisms and increased tax revenue?
