It gives me great pleasure to welcome His Excellency Thabo Mbeki back to the OECD, along with colleagues from the High-Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa. As you know, this is Integrity Week at the OECD and we are still amidst the aftershock of the Unaoil scandal and the Panama Papers. Your visit, Mr. President, could not be more timely.
Les révélations des « Panama papers » mettent en lumière la culture et la pratique du secret au Panama. Le Panama est la dernière des grandes places offshore qui permet encore de dissimuler des fonds pour échapper à l’administration fiscale et aux autorités répressives.

As I said in Antalya, the three ”I”s in taxation in 2016 are about implementation, implementation and implementation. We are delivering today the new inclusive framework to support global BEPS implementation.
Without effective implementation, we risk consigning the BEPS reports to books gathering dust on shelves. That is why your efforts to transform the BEPS agreement into reality – evidenced by your signature of the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement (MCAA) for the automatic exchange of country‑by-country reports – are so important.
Je me réjouis des solutions proposées par l’Union Européenne pour mettre en œuvre les mesures du projet BEPS qui permettront d’engager de façon concrète les changements du système fiscal international et d’étayer une économie globale plus juste.
Today, Israel becomes the 91st jurisdiction to join the Multilateral Convention on mutual administrative assistance in tax matters. This powerful instrument for cross-border tax assistance has now been signed by all OECD members – an important show of unity in our common fight against tax evasion.
Thanks to your leadership “fair play” will become the name of the game in international tax policies. With the set of agreed measures, the location of the profits of multinationals and where they pay their taxes will be the same as the location of the activities generating these profits, with the aim of reversing revenue losses in the public coffers of up to a quarter trillion US dollars annually.
Yesterday, G20 finance ministers endorsed the set of 15 actions to address base erosion and profit shifting. This is an historical moment.
To tackle these challenges and mitigate their effects, the OECD is working in a wide spectrum of policy areas: anti-bribery, public procurement, lobbying or money laundering. Strengthening the role of internal controls and audit functions is one of our key tools to help combat corruption and fraud.
