After ten years of hosting the Pan-African Conference (PAC) on Illicit Financial Flows and Taxation, this year, Tax Justice Network Africa (TJNA) is excited to co-host its 10th PAC alongside the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF). Over the years, TJNA and ATAF have advocated for pro-poor tax policies and systems that curb leakages and optimise domestic resource mobilisation on the continent. The uncertainty of the current global economy has made this mission more critical than ever. As such, in light of the present context, the 2022 PAC will be held under the theme ‘Tax Justice Amid Multiple Crises.’ And in the spirit and tradition of the PAC, the two lead institutions will collaborate with other organisations to deliver a successful 10th PAC.
The main objective of this year’s PAC conference is, therefore, to explore ways to mitigate the impact of global external shocks on the continent through tackling illicit financial flows and undertaking progressive domestic resource mobilisation.
Objectives The 10th PAC will seek to:
- Identify transformative actions and solutions for actors such as African governments, parliamentarians, civil society organisations, the private sector and other policy players that are key in mobilising domestic resources within the context
- Create opportunities for growing partnerships and collaborations to raise domestic resources between the different actors.
- Showcase the emergence of innovative policies and tools that effectively raise domestic resources in African countries.
