Panama meets with EU

Temas:

European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici will receive Panama Ambassador to Belgium Darío Ernesto Chirú Wednesday to address issues of tax cooperation to ensure financial transparency and combat tax fraud.

In June 2015, the European Commission published a list of 30 tax havens - including Panama - which was based on the black lists of member countries. Panama criticized its inclusion, saying the data it used was not current.

Sources of the European Commission explained that Panama remains on the black list of eight member countries as a country that "does not comply with the political standards in the field of taxation."

"Recent events have shown that we were right to identify the country as a subject that has much work to do to meet the standards expected of international partners," added sources from the commission.

However, the decision to implement a model for the exchange of tax information required by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) by Panama has been appraised as a very positive development.

"We are pleased to see the recent announcement," the source said. "We believe that transparency is the best tool to combat tax fraud and evasion.

Earlier this week, Moscovici said that tax evasion costs European countries $1 trillion a year.
