BVI Delegation Participates in Global Tax Transparency Summit

The delegation from the British Virgin Islands represented the territory at the Global Tax Transparency Summit which was organised by the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee and held on December 9. The Summit brought together parliamentarians, business academics, campaigners and tax experts with the purpose to discuss tax transparency and tax avoidance.

The BVI delegation including BVI UK representative Benito Wheatley and BVI London Office deputy director Dr Sandra Besson attended plenary sessions and took part in a lunch roundtable on transparency. It was important for the BVI to be present at the event to make sure that main participants are aware of the positive role BVI plays in the world economy and its compliance with international standards on tax transparency.
