In recent years, a lively discussion has unfolded on international tax agreements in relation to EU partnerships with developing countries. As a contribution to the debate, the EESC is currently drafting an opinion in which it will examine the arguments presented in published studies on capital flows and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) out of and into developing countries, and will look at the coherence between EU development and investment policies. Furthermore, the opinion aims to further the dialogue between European Commission and the M! ember States regarding double taxation agreements, investment and development policy objectives.

In order to gather high-level expert input during the preparatory process for this opinion from a wide range of stakeholders including civil society organisations, think tanks, and EU institutions, a hearing is organised at the EESC premises. It will take place on Friday 28 April, from 09.00 to 13.00.

You are cordially invited to participate in this hearing.
