The two-day meeting will mark a new era in international tax policymaking, as a broad range of countries representing varying levels of development come together for the first time with OECD members and G20 countries to address BEPS on an equal footing in the OECD’s Committee on Fiscal Affairs. By participating in the decision-making as well as the technical working groups, these countries and jurisdictions will now have a direct influence in shaping the international tax rules.
