Last year, following three years of negotiations, the OECD/G20 project on base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS), designed to address corporate tax avoidance, concluded with governments developing a framework for modernizing international tax rules.

As the focus of this work shifts to implementation -- in which the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will invite all interested jurisdictions to become part of a dialogue that will directly shape monitoring processes on BEPS issues -- government officials, company executives and tax practitioners will gather June 6-7 in Washington, D.C. to discuss the challenges of BEPS implementation and the future of global tax policy.

Now in its 11th year, the sold-out conference is organized by the United States Council for International Business (USCIB) in cooperation with the 34-nation Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the leading global forum for discussion of international tax policies, along with the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD.

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.
