Tax Transparency in Africa 2023: Africa Initiative Progress Report


Tax Transparency in Africa 2023: Africa Initiative Progress Report


Tax Transparency in Africa is a key output of the Africa Initiative, a programme established in 2014 to ensure that African countries are equipped to exploit the latest improvements in global transparency, to better tackle tax evasion and other illicit financial flows and ultimately improve domestic resource mobilisation to support their economic development.

The 2023 edition covers 38 African countries and is co-produced by the Global Forum, the African Union Commission and the African Tax Administration Forum. It seeks to inform decision makers and citizens on the continent’s latest progress and remaining challenges in matters of transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes. The launch event was part of the 13th Meeting of the Africa Initiative, which was held on 6-7 July in Cape Town, South Africa. The meeting gathered high-level representatives and experts from tax administrations, regional and international organisations, as well as academia and civil society organisations.
