Financial Services Ministry hosts global tax conference


The Ministry of Financial Services hosted the Tax Transparency in the Global Financial Services Ecosystem conference during the first week of April.

“From the world’s foremost minds on tax transparency and the ecosystem in which it operates, the leaders of Cayman’s financial services firms will hear first-hand about the global dynamics to which Cayman contributes, and by which it is affected,” said Minister of Financial Services Wayne Panton.

“It also gives industry an opportunity to probe these developments via the scheduled Q&A sessions and informal conversations.”

Delivering the keynote was Pascal Saint-Amans, the OECD’s Director of the Centre for Tax Policy and Administration.

Minister Panton said the conference is well timed and added: “Throughout history, taxation has always garnered significant public interest, and rightfully so. But no doubt, this is one of the most dynamic periods in the history of international tax because the confluence of issues, mixed with diverse international opinions and sovereign policy positions, makes it an increasingly complex subject.

“During this conference, then, we’re encouraging attendees to air and where necessary, to substantiate, their views, in order to foster understanding and actions that support both national tax needs and global regulatory outcomes.”
