16/04/2021 - The tenth edition of the tax policy publication Revenue Statistics in Latin America and the Caribbean will be launched on 22 April 2021 on the occasion of XXXIII edition of the Regional Fiscal Policy Seminar hosted virtually by the United Nations’ Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UN-ECLAC) and partners. The launch event is organised in collaboration with the co-authors of the publication: UN-ECLAC, the Inter-American Center of Tax Administrations (CIAT), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the OECD Centre for Tax Policy and Administration, and the OECD Development Centre.
The report provides an overview of the main taxation trends from 1990 to 2019 in 27 Latin American and Caribbean economies. Its approach is based on the OECD Revenue Statistics database methodology, which provides internationally comparable data on tax levels and tax structures. This edition includes two special features: the first examines the fiscal policy responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the second analyses the performance of hydrocarbon and mining revenues in 2019 and 2020.
Journalists are invited to join a live webinar event on the day of the launch, Thursday 22 April 2021 at 16:00-17:30 (Paris time)/10:00-11:30 (Santiago time). The webinar will feature a presentation of the report and expert inputs from partner organisations.
