GENEVA (25 July 2023) – UN experts* today welcomed the upcoming first Latin American and Caribbean Summit for an Inclusive, Sustainable and Equitable Global Tax Order to be held in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, on 27-28 July 2023. They issued the following statement:

“The regional initiative aims to agree on common tax standards to combat illicit financial flows, tax evasion and avoidance, and other shared problems, such as rising poverty, inequality, and the climate emergency. In addition, under the Secretariat of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the initiative will hopefully serve as a permanent, transparent, and inclusive decision-making platform for regional tax cooperation.
