Global relations and development

Global relations calendar of events 2020

 

Each year, the Global Relations Programme in taxation (GRP) holds more than 50 events to equip tax officials from developing countries with the knowledge and skills to tackle today’s most pressing challenges in international taxation, on topics ranging from How to tackle BEPS practices or audit MNEs, to How to exchange information or negotiate tax treaties. These events are offered free of charge in three formats: (1) face-to-face, (2) blended learning, and (3) e-learning

Our goal is to help tax officials take part in an international community to share their experiences, acquire a common understanding of international tax systems and their implementation and develop solutions to common problems. Approximately 40 000 tax officials from more than 100 countries have participated in the Programme since 1992. Many of these events are delivered in partnership with regional and international tax organisations.

The Global Relations Programme thanks its donors, especially Japan, for their generous financial and in-kind contributions.

N.B. Although every effort is made to maintain the dates for events, factors outside our control mean dates are sometimes subject to change → please verify with the Global Relations Team at CTP.GlobalRelations@oecd.org prior to making any travel arrangements. Please note that participants are responsible for their personal travel insurance.

 

CANCELLATIONS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS: The Global Relations Programme has been following the development of the COVID-19 very closely. Since March 3rd, the OECD’s security policy mandates that all OECD travel is cancelled unless it is strictly essential. Regretfully, in light of these circumstances, we will be cancelling all GRP events taking place in March, April, May and June in order to ensure the participants and experts’ welfare and safety. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we appreciate your understanding in this matter. We will look at the possibilities of postponing the event to new dates once the situation evolves, and once we have a consolidated view of the entire programme to assess if there is capacity to accommodate these events later in the year. Any updates will be reflected on this website. 

Please note that the Global Relations Team is organising several virtual classes to replace the cancelled events. You will find more information on our elearning page.
