CF&P Tax Competition Conference in Ottawa: Center Challenges OECD to Participate

Washington, DC (September 8, 2003) Today, the Center for Freedom and Prosperity announced a Tax Competition Conference to be held in Ottawa Canada on Monday, October 13 at 4 p.m. in the Macdonald room of the Fairmont Chateau Laurier hotel followed by a reception.  The Conference is being planned to coincide with the OECD's Global Forum on International Tax Policy that starts the next day. This will be the Center's fifth forum over the last few months discussing the virtues of tax competition and the folly of European-instigated tax harmonization policies.

The Center for Freedom and Prosperity's event is designed to give non-OECD policy makers useful information as they prepare to meet with the OECD.  CF&P will bring together leading international tax experts to discuss how best to preserve tax competition, financial privacy, and fiscal sovereignty. The time and location for the event will be announced in the near future, and the OECD will be invited to participate.

The OECD has convened their Global Forum to convince the targeted non-OECD jurisdictions that there is a "level playing field" between them and the 30 OECD countries, notwithstanding the fact that numerous OECD member nations do not share information with foreign tax authorities.
