Mr. Ruud de Mooij (Chief of the Tax Policy Division of the IMF’s Fiscal Affairs Department)
Government officials from Ministry of Finance or equivalent agencies and interested officials working in other public entities or central banks.
Most governments have responded swiftly to the COVID-19 crisis with a wide range of tax measures. As the pandemic gets more under control and economies are reopening, new tax measures might be needed to initially stimulate the recovery and subsequently recover the costs of increased debts—thereby supporting the desired transformation toward a new equilibrium.
This webinar discusses which revenue policy measures are recommended to support government COVID-19 crisis responses while safeguarding tax revenue; what policy options are available to emerging economies?
The webinar draws on recent notes in the IMF special series on COVID-19 and is followed by an interactive Q and A session.
