Every government that’s supported a UN tax body, in one table

April 28th, 2017

At the UN ECOSOC special meeting on international cooperation in tax matters held on 7 April 2017,  G77 and China (group of 134 developing countries) reiterated their long-standing demand for an intergovernmental tax body at the UN. Additional statements in support of the issue were made by Egypt, Brazil, India and CARICOM (14 member states of the Caribbean community) in their national and regional capacity.

In case you have wondered how many statements like these exist, and which specific governments have lent their support, we have now compiled them in a single database. At the Financial Transparency Coalition, we’ve long supported the demand for a neutral UN intergovernmental body to address global challenges related to illicit financial flows, including tax avoidance and evasion that ensures all countries are represented. And we hope that this list will grow with support from developed country governments as well.

We will keep this up to date as a resource for everyone following this issue. Please get in touch with us if we’ve missed any statements.
