The goal of this webinar, conducted in partnership with ALDIC, is to evaluate the Lebanese taxation system and to think of how to make it more inclusive, fair, and efficient. The discussion will focus on the recent performance of the taxation system and explore future reforms by contrasting the needs in the near future to support the stabilization and recovery phase, and in a second phase to support a new sustainable growth model anchored in both competitiveness and social justice.
The webinar will be in English with Arabic interpretation available on Zoom only.
