The OECD Secretary-General Report to G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors, presented by Secretary General Gurría to the First G20 Meeting of Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors of 2018, contains two parts. Part I is a report on the activities and achievements of the OECD’s tax agenda, and is made of two subparts: looking back at significant achievements and looking ahead at the further progress needed, in particular through the Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting. Part II is a Progress Report to the G20 by the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes.

Gurría noted that 2018 provides a timely opportunity to assess the performance towards the growth goals for 2020 set by the G20 in Brisbane in 2014, including complex but necessary fiscal matters, and warned against lost momentum amongst G20 countries.

G20 Members welcomed the report, which includes the multilateral solutions set out in the Interim Report on Digital Tax.

The 1st Meeting of Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors of Argentina’s G20 presidency was held on 19-20 March 2018, in Buenos Aires.
