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.
