I appreciate that the European Australian Business Council has played an important role in fostering business links between the EU and Australia.

02/12/2013 - Commissioner Semeta: speech to the Australian Taxation Industry Roundtable [56 KB]
Your thoughts, as tax practitioners, on international tax matters – or even issues specific to Australia or the EU – are of great interest to me, and I look forward to hearing them today. My visit to Australia is made all the more interesting for the fact that your country soon takes up the G20 Presidency. This is a very important role, which will have a major impact on the direction that international tax reforms take in the year ahead.
