Our economies and societies will be shaped by major trends in the coming years. Aging, climate change, globalisation and digitalisation will impact the way Europeans live, work, interact and do business.
These mega-trends will have a significant impact on taxation – challenging previously stable sources of revenue and offering new opportunities for public income. At the same, taxation will have a substantial contribution to make in responding to these new and emerging challenges, as well as to supporting the green and digital transitions.
This is why the European Commission launched the Tax Symposium in 2022 in Brussels - a high-level event to reflect on the right tax mix for the EU over the next 20-30 years.
In 2023, the Tax Symposium returns to Brussels for a 1.5 day event on 24 October (afternoon only) in the SQUARE – Brussels Convention Centre and 25 October 2023 (full day) in the European Parliament. The European Parliament and the European Commission will co-host this second edition, under the theme “The future of taxation in the EU: Challenges ahead & changes needed”.
The Tax Symposium will stimulate a broad debate, covering a wide range of tax issues, at all levels of governance.
