Dear friends, dear interested,
Together 65 economists and public figures from Italy and Germany will publish a new call for proposals on Monday. We call for a refinancing of the Corona reconstruction programme by curbing tax dumping and money laundering in Europe.
We want to publicly discuss our German-Italian demands in a public webinar with the responsible EU Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni and the well-known Italian economist Prof. Tito Boeri on
Monday, 8 June 2020, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.
In the past, a lack of European unity has limited progress towards a common tax policy and a determined fight against financial crime. Given the scale of this corona crisis and the increasing national debt, we call for a comprehensive zero tolerance policy against money laundering, tax fraud and tax dumping in Europe. In the webinar we will present and discuss with you our five key measures for such a zero tolerance policy. We will also present a strategy on how we can enforce our demands despite unanimity voting on EU tax issues.
- Paolo Gentiloni, EU Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs
- Prof. Tito Boeri, Bocconi University, President (ret.) “Istituto Nazionale Previdenza Sociale (INPS)
- Franziska Brantner, Member of the Bundestag, Spokeswoman for European Policy
- Sven Giegold, MEP, Chairman of the Greens in the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON)
The webinar is part of the Italian-German campaign www.WeAreInThisTogether.eu – Sign up now!
Our interactive webinar format allows all participants to ask oral and written questions and thus contribute their own ideas to the discussion. The webinar will be held in Italian, German and English with simultaneous oral translation.
As space is limited, it is best to register right here!
Please share the invitation with anyone who might be interested! We are looking forward to an exciting discussion with you.
With solidarity and European greetings
Alexandra Geese, Sven Giegold and Franziska Brantner
