How do key emerging markets fit into the global taxation system? How can the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), national governments and global business best foster simplicity, effective problem-solving and appropriate tax policy tools for countries at different stages of development?

These will be among the questions tackled at the annual tax conference of the United States Council for International Business (USCIB), June 4-5 in Washington, D.C. Now in its sixth year, the sold-out event will focus on the work of the 34-nation OECD, a key global forum for discussion and coordination of national taxation policies. The conference provides a unique opportunity for American business to interact with top representatives of the OECD's Center for Tax Policy and Administration, as well as senior tax officials from the U.S. and other OECD countries.

USCIB promotes open markets, competitiveness and innovation, sustainable development and corporate responsibility, supported by international engagement and regulatory coherence. Its members include U.S.-based global companies and professional services firms from every sector of our economy, with operations in every region of the world. With a unique global network encompassing leading international business organizations, USCIB provides business views to policy makers and regulatory authorities worldwide, and works to facilitate international trade and investment.
