Commissioner Šemeta signals the momentum for more coordinated and coherent European action in taxation
Commissioner Šemeta visited Stockholm today, where he delivered an opening speech in the International Tax Conference.
In his speech he signaled the momentum for more coordinated and coherent European action in taxation: "Faced with the crisis, we have made progress and there is today a greater awareness of the need for more coordinated and more coherent European action. The effect of this "new world order" on taxation is obvious. International tax cooperation has regained momentum and there is agreement that the principles of good governance in the tax area should be promoted globally. At the same time, our businesses are active across borders and tax policy should create a better business environment to ensure their competitiveness. Finally, tax reforms are seen as a key ingredient of our wider strategy on growth and jobs."
