Michael Lennard Fire Side Chat
On Wednesday 20th November 2013 the WU Global Tax Policy Center at the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law hosted the sixth in the new series of tax policy discussions between Prof. Jeffrey Owens and leading players in the field of tax policy. The "Tax Policy Fire Side Chats" focus on issues which are currently preoccupying governments, business and civil society and enable a wide audience to participate in these policy debates.
Michael Lennard, Chief of International Tax Cooperation Section (UN), was our guest speaker with Jeffrey. The debate focussed on the role and function of the UN Tax Committee, the UN Model Convention and its priorities for the upcoming year, Transfer Pricing, the UN Manual, Exchange of Information, the UN and BEPS, as well as the UN's Committee on natural resource taxation.
