The annual release of Tax Transparency in Africa is a key output of the Africa Initiative. It informs decision makers and citizens, by providing comparable statistics on tax transparency as one of African countries’ responses to the issue of illicit financial flows. Tax Transparency in Africa 2021, the third edition of the Africa Initiative Progress Report, presents the most recent progress made on the two pillars of the Initiative: (i) raising political awareness and commitment in Africa and (ii) developing capacities in African countries in tax transparency and exchange of information.
The live launch event included a presentation of the report's key findings and panel discussions with experts from partner organisations, followed by a Q&A session. Panellists included high-level speakers from the African Union Commission, the African Tax Administration Forum, the African Development Bank, the Global Forum, the OECD, the European Union Commission, the Independent Commission for the Reform of International Corporate Taxation, Tax Justice Network Africa as well as representatives from various African tax administrations.
