2012 Global Forum on Development

 

28-29 February 2012

 

About the Global Forum on Development:


The OECD Global Forum on Development was launched in 2006 to promote dialogue between the OECD and non-member governments, as well as private sector and civil society actors. This second cycle (2009-2012) focused on domestic resource mobilisation and led to the creation of a new informal Task Force on Tax and Development.
