Elected representatives from Indonesia, Ghana, Malawi and Mexico will be travelling to Washington for the annual meetings to press the points raised by the International Parliamentarians’ Petition (IPP), signed by over 1000 MPs in 50 countries worldwide. The representatives will meet with the G24 and southern executive directors of the Bank and Fund. At the spring meetings MPs met with Bank and Fund staff and management and northern executive directors. Following that meeting, Malawian representatives returned home to form the Malawian Parliamentary Committee on the IFIs.
The IMF and the World Bank are increasingly engaged with the challenge of addressing how tax avoidance and evasion affect developing countries, but need to address the role played by multinational enterprises and tax havens in exacerbating inequality and undermining countries’ domestic revenues.
