  • Tax information production, sharing, use and publication
  • Appropriateness of international tax norms to developing country contexts
  • Transparency of asset and beneficial ownership information
  • Anti-corruption measures
  • Foreign bribery investigations and prosecutions
  • Enhancing asset recovery and return
  • Peer review in financial integrity matter

The Secretariat has prepared an information note that provides more detail about the papers.
