Illicit Financial Flows: Out of Africa into the wild

Round table on tax justice

2 June 2015, 18:30 – 20:30

Auditorium Banque de Luxembourg

14, boulevard Royal – Luxembourg-Ville

The High Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows from Africa estimates that at least $30 billion to $60 billion a year escape taxation in Africa – money that could be invested in education, healthcare or sanitation.

Instead it is gulped by the vastly complex international finance system. An area Luxembourg plays a prominent role in. Considering the financial know-how at hand, can one hence infer that Luxembourg could just as well become a driving force for international tax justice, preventing developing countries’ tax money from disappearing into “the wild”?
