The event, which took place from 3rd to 7th June, was designed to help participants’ understanding of the different international tax standards and the work that the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information and the Inclusive Framework on base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) does around the implementation of the international standards. The event was aimed at policy makers working in their country’s ministry of finance or tax administration with decision-making responsibility on BEPS/exchange of information implementation, such as for designing legislation and guidance or involved in international tax issues and the taxation of multinational groups. 

The workshop was supported by the Asian Development Bank, Inland Revenue of New Zealand, and OECD Korea Policy Centre.
