EMI blog on the European Year for Development (EYD) 2015: CESI contribution on fair taxation for development available

The blog post, entitled ‘Fighting tax evasion by firms to achieve sustainable corporate and societal environments: An issue not only for the EU internally but for development cooperation too’, is available on the website of the EMI.

As a European trade union confederation representing national trade unions of tax administration officials from several European countries and as a member of the European Commission’s advisory Platform for Tax Good Governance, fair taxation for development is a matter very close to CESI’s heart. CESI has stressed for a long time that if dubious tax practices by transnational companies are to be eliminated for the benefit of sustainable business and societal environments, national tax administrations in Europe and beyond need to be strengthened and better equipped to efficiently and effectively perform their function: Collecting due taxes.
