CFP's OECD Tax Competition Discussions
The Center for Freedom and Prosperity is hosting two briefings in Barbados. The first briefing will take place on
Saturday, January 6, and is open only
to officials from governments targeted by the OECD. This event is designed to give these policy makers useful information as they prepare to meet with the OECD on January 8-9, and is a private, off-the-record meeting in order to facilitate a frank and open exchange. The
Sunday, January 7, event is open to the public, and will feature the same speakers but will be more focused on information that will be useful to journalists and offshore practitioners.
At these briefings, attendees will hear from Daniel Mitchell, a Senior Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, Bruce Zagaris, a tax lawyer from Berliner, Corcoran & Rowe,
Marshall Langer, a tax lawyer and well-know author, and Elizabeth Tobias, the top tax aide to House Majority Leader Dick Armey. Andrew Quinlan will then conclude each briefing with a discussion of
the Center's main project – the Coalition for Tax Competition – and how we intend to convince the OECD to withdraw their misguided initiative.
At both events the Center for Freedom and Prosperity
will bring together leading international tax experts to discuss how best to preserve tax competition, financial privacy, and fiscal sovereignty. Both the Saturday and Sunday briefings will begin at 2:00 p.m.
and last no longer than 5:00 p.m. Both conferences will take place at the Grand Barbados Beach Resort in Bridgetown.

Daniel J. Mitchell -- Heritage Foundation, Senior Fellow
"Tax Competition should be celebrated, not persecuted"
