|10TH ATHENS TAX FORUM|
The American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and its Taxation Committee organized the 10thAthens Tax Forum, marked by great success and participation, under the title: Taxation-at the turning point of the Greek economy, on March 28, 2014 at the Athenaeum Intercontinental Hotel.
Speakers shared and discussed with participants “smart” proposals in view of planned tax measures, both temporary (radical) and structural, aimed to secure fiscal stabilization and trigger economic growth in Greece, entrenched in a deep and prolonged economic crisis.
The Athens Tax Forum 2014 was designed to offer delegates first-hand knowledge of crucial taxation issues and provided the decisive platform for high-level dialogue between the public and the private sectors in Greece. Delegates included distinguished State officials, taxation experts, accountants, consultants, professors, decision and policy makers, and members of the Greek business community. Greece’s Deputy Minister of Finance was present at this event.
This year’s Forum, coinciding with Greece’s EU Presidency, addressed the decisive role of taxation policies at this crucial turning point of the Greek economy, in concurrence with present EU taxation policy platforms, which focus on, among other synergies, reinforcing economic governance within a single, coherent, and competitive EU Market.
The Forum produced constructive dialogue, craft practical suggestions, and highlighted valuable proposals to overcome current weaknesses of the national tax system. The Forum, attended by over 300 delegates, focused on those tax policies to be followed that will lead to healthy fiscal positions and economic growth.
