ATI Follow-up Technical Meeting on Tax Expenditures (Asia)

Upcoming | 7-9 May 2024

Building on the Regional Workshop on Tax Expenditures in Asia that took place in Manila last year, the Addis Tax Initiative (ATI) together with the Council on Economic Policies and the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS), as well as the Inland Revenue Department of Nepal, the Asian Development Bank (ADB), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), are co-organizing a follow-up technical meeting on tax expenditures for the region. The event (by invitation) will be held in Kathmandu from 7-9 May 2024.

The full report of the previous workshop in Manila is available here.  

The convening in Kathmandu is part of a series of regional workshops and follow-up technical meetings on tax expenditures that build on ATI Commitment 3, as well as the Global Tax Expenditures Database (GTED) and the Global Tax Expenditures Transparency Index (GTETI) published by CEP and IDOS. The technical meetings are designed to provide a platform for ATI member countries and other interested governments to exchange with regional partners and international experts on the estimation, reporting, and evaluation of tax expenditures. The events also serve as a platform to advance collaboration in the field.

In 2023, two other technical meetings were held for West & East African countries, respectively in Ghana and Tanzania, with a similar format.
