Delegates from 39 African tax authorities will attend the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF) that will be hosted by the Rwanda Revenue Authority in Kigali from June 2 to 3, 2011.
The forum will aim to share experiences, assess principles of tax authorities as well as mobilise domestic resources to improve their administrations through.
The Commissioner General of Rwanda Revenue Authority (RRA), Ben Kagarama, said that participants will review progress of past activities and also formulate new ones for the future.
“ATAF is a platform to promote and facilitate mutual co-operation among African tax administrations to improve the worth of tax legislation and administrations,” Kagarama said in an interview yesterday.
“Our membership to ATAF has benefited in various ways, particularly through expertise and capacity building from its development partners, the World Bank, IMF and others.’
ATAF was inspired in August 2008 by senior African tax officials to promote effectiveness of tax administrations in order to contribute to economic growth and improve their service delivery.
