In addition to presentations on different aspects of the international standard and its implementation in practice participants were provided with guidance on the peer review process and the Terms of Reference. Participants also shared their views and experiences on several issues related to exchange of information for tax purposes. The seminar was also an excellent opportunity for officials practically dealing with exchange of information in the region to meet with each other.
