Taxation: Promoting Economic Recovery and Inclusive Growth in Africa
Tuesday, June 28, 2022
16:00 - 17:30 CAT
This is a Virtual Event
As African economies are retooling to relaunch, governments are pulling on different economic levers to continue their regalian functions and honor their fiscal responsibilities while engineering inclusive growth.
One key lever is taxation, which when deployed in coordination with stakeholders including private-sector actors, has the potential of creating a virtuous cycle: generating more revenues through tax collection by broadening the tax base; modernizing tax administration through automation and digitization; reducing tax losses; and incentivizing investment, which creates more jobs.
This is the first in a series of three virtual roundtables convened by the Corporate Council on Africa in partnership with Coca-Cola Africa to discuss key economic issues in Africa. The first session will focus on the transformative role played by taxation in African economies and the importance for regulators to partner with the private sector from the onset, from tax policy formulations, implementation to enforcement
