Mission

Factsheet

The International Tax Compact (ITC) is a neutral stakeholder platform that aims to enhance domestic revenue mobilisation (DRM) and to promote fair, efficient and transparent tax systems in partner countries. It promotes networking, peer learning and capacity development, bringing together a large number of stakeholders. These include, among others, policymakers and representatives from academia, civil society organisations and the private sector working in the field of taxation and development.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) launched the platform in 2009 and commissioned the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) to host the ITC Secretariat. From April 2017 to September 2019, the European Union supported the International Tax Compact through a co-financing agreement. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands provides funding for individual activities.
