International Tax Forum on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), 17 April 2018

The Belt and Road Ini­ti­at­ive (BRI) has the po­ten­tial to trans­form the econom­ies through which the over­land and mari­time routes pass. To achieve this goal will re­quire very large amounts of long-term in­vest­ment in cross-bor­der in­fra­struc­ture pro­jects and the devel­op­ment of private and pub­lic part­ner­ships. Tax has the po­ten­tial to act as a bar­rier to such in­vest­ment which is why the WU GTPC (WU Global Tax Policy Center at the In­sti­tute for Aus­trian and In­ter­na­tional Tax Law) last year launched a ma­jor pro­gram on this is­sue in co­oper­a­tion with a num­ber of Chinese re­search in­sti­tutes and with the Chinese State Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Tax­a­tion (SAT).

The next meet­ing in the ser­ies will take place on 17 April 2018 in Vi­enna and will fo­cus on po­ten­tial tax bar­ri­ers to the BRI in the area of dir­ect and in­dir­ect taxes. The dis­cus­sions will be based upon a num­ber of re­search pa­pers and in­puts from gov­ern­ment, aca­demia and busi­ness. We would very much like if you were able to at­tend this meet­ing.

If you wish to par­ti­cip­ate, please kindly fill out your re­gis­tra­tion on­line.
