Global co-operation to fight tax evasion and avoidance has grown rapidly over the past few years. Tax transparency and exchange of information between tax authorities about financial assets and activities of their taxpayers abroad, which has proved to be a valuable tool in this fight, will be discussed at the eleventh meeting of the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes, to be held on 20-22 November 2018 in Punta del Este, Uruguay.

Borrowing by low and middle-income economies from external official and private creditors surged to $607 billion in 2017 from $181 billion the previous year, the highest level in three years, as net debt inflows surpassed equity inflows for the first time since 2013, the World Bank’s International Debt Statistics 2019 shows.

This transversal approach has ensured gender perspectives have been taken into account in all work streams, which has led to concrete progress towards achieving fair and sustainable development.

On 30 November and 1 December, world leaders will meet in the Argentine capital to conclude G20 Argentina 2018.
