Tax Incentives in Developing Economies in Times of COVID-19

In times of COVID-19, countries across the world are introducing a myriad of response and stimulus packages including costly and (often) ineffective tax incentives to mitigate the economic downturn triggered by the pandemic. The first in a series of two virtual seminars co-organized by CEP and the GLOBTAXGOV Project (Leiden University) explored the measures taken by developing countries – the second seminar “Incentivos Fiscales en Iberoamérica en Tiempos de COVID19” was focused on Iberoamérica and held in Spanish.

The seminar, which was held on Wednesday June 24 2020 (4pm-6pm CEST) featured Edmund Valpy Fitzgerald (Oxford University and ICRICT), Alexandra Redhead (IISD and IGF), Sanjeev Gupta (CGDEV) and CEP fellow Agustin Redonda, and was moderated by Irma Mosquera Valderrama.
