BACKGROUND

Governments' ability to mobilize resources with an efficient tax system that pays for vital social services is at the heart of stimulating economic development. Governments therefore need to strengthen their tax systems' integrity to generate sustainable revenues to support economic growth. However, digital transformation is creating a new set of opportunities and challenges for tax systems across countries regardless of development level. Digital technology that offers real-time data aggregation, data visualization, and predictive forecasting, and replaces traditional manual work and management of records and data will revolutionize conventional tax practices. At the same time, developing countries could face challenges adopting new technologies given relatively weak digital capabilities.

  • Build the officials' capacity to design and implement innovative approaches to all aspects of tax administration in the digital age.
PARTICIPANTS
  • 16 leading tax administrators from the Cook Islands, Indonesia, Kiribati, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Timor-Leste, Tonga, Samoa, Vanuatu, and Viet Nam
  • Experts from academia
OUTPUT
  • Shared knowledge and experiences in responding to the challenge of the digital economy
  • Enhanced regional coordination of national tax policies and administration
  • Good examples of effective tax policies and programs in Asia and the Pacific
  • Technical information on tax administration
  • Presentation materials to be uploaded to the ADBI website
