IBFD Dialogues on International Taxation Seminar
IBFD’s Dialogues on International Taxation Seminar at IFA Seoul will focus on specific key issues in international taxation, in order to give a valuable indication of trends in the legal interpretation and policy of cross-border taxation. Top international experts will discuss the practical implications of the recent OECD Multilateral Convention for the double tax treaty network, giving you a unique glimpse into what truly matters in international taxation. Addressing current tax issues, the IBFD Dialogues, as always, will look at these problems from a different perspective, focusing on future developments. The IBFD Dialogues are therefore a perfect in-depth supplement to the IFA seminars for a full immersion into technical issues, combined with an overall view of tax sovereignty in the era of global tax coordination.


Likewise, in 2018, our IBFD Dialogues will serve as an excellent platform to launch the completion of the IBFD Global Tax Treaty Commentaries (GTTC), the most authoritative source for analysis and commentary on tax treaty practices across the globe. This peer-reviewed, cutting edge publication is authored by world-class academics and tax professionals.
