Welcome to our new ITD conference site


The International Tax Dialogue (ITD) is a joint initiative of the  European Commission (EC)Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)International Monetary Fund (IMF)Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Bank Group and Inter-American Center of Tax Administrations (CIAT). The ITD aims to encourage and facilitate discussion of tax matters among national tax officials, regional tax organisations, international organisations and other key stakeholders.

The ITD aims to:

  • Promote effective international dialogue and networking between international organisations, governments, and their officials on tax policy and administration matters.
  • Identify and share good practices in taxation.
  • Work together to identify synergies and avoid duplication of effort in respect of existing activities on tax matters.


The ITD arranges periodic global and regional conferences to discuss key policy and administration issues. The conferences bring together experts and practitioners to identify and share good practice, facilitate dialogue between countries, and contribute to the development of future programs and activities.

Five global conferences have been held to date, each attended by senior officials from approximately 90+ countries. Conferences have focused on Tax and Intergovernmental Relations in 2013 (Morocco), Tax and Inequality in 2011 (India), Taxation of Financial Institutions in 2009 (China), SMEs in 2007 (Argentina) and VAT in 2005 (Italy). Six follow-up regional conferences have also been held since 2009.
