05/11/2020 – The fifth edition of the tax policy publication Revenue Statistics in Africa will be launched on Thursday, 12 November 2020. The report provides an overview of the main taxation trends from 1990 to 2018 in 30 countries, including Chad, Lesotho, Malawi, and Namibia for the first time.
This edition includes a special feature, discussing factors likely to affect the future of domestic resource mobilisation in Africa in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the impact of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) on trade and public revenues.
We invite you to join a live webinar event on the day of the launch, Thursday 12 November 2020 from 14:00 to 15:30 (CET). The webinar will feature a presentation of the report and expert inputs from partner organisations, followed by a 10-15 minute Q&A.
