39th Annual CATA Technical Conference

39th Annual CATA Technical Conference
Vizor’s CRS & AEOI Business Development Manager, Mary O’Leary, to present at the 39th Annual CATA Technical Conference in Nadi, Fiji.

The Commonwealth Association of Tax Administrators, established in 1978 by a decision of the Commonwealth Finance Ministers, helps member countries through conferences, training programmes, publications and knowledge sharing to develop effective tax administrations that promote sustainable development and good governance. Forty-six Commonwealth countries are currently active members of CATA.

The annual conference, hosted by a different member government each year, debates important policy and technical issues of current concern to member tax administrations. It is attended by senior tax officials up to Commissioner level, representatives of agencies providing aid to lesser developed countries, other interested international organisations and observers from certain non Commonwealth governments. The conference is normally opened by the Head of State of the host country, or a delegated Minister, and continues for five working days. The theme of this year’s event is “Building sustainability and resilience in tax administration”.
