The current global financial crisis marks a rare moment when the interests of developing and developed countries are closely aligned. This conference will highlight how a common approach to greater financial transparency can benefit rich and poor nations alike. Speakers will address country-by-country reporting of income and tax paid by multinational corporations, listing beneficial ownership of subsidiaries , automatic exchange of tax information between governments, curtailing trade mispricing, harmonizing predicate crimes for money laundering charges among FATF countries, and other issues of transparency that continue to hamper development in poor nations. Among the list of leading experts slated to speak are U.S. Senator Carl Levin and scholars Dr. Francis Fukuyama and Dr. Paul Collier. You can consult a draft agenda of the conference here.
