A core challenge for many developing countries is to improve their domestic revenue mobilization—to raise more, in ways that are more efficient, fairer and better promote good governance.

The aim of this conference, marking the launch of two trust funds to support the Fund’s technical assistance in this area, is to bring together leading policy makers and academics, business and civil society to improve decisions and advice by learning from successes and failures of the past, and from the most recent academic advances. In doing so, and drawing lessons from the IMF conference in Nairobi on March 21-22, hosted by the Kenya Government, it will also inform the response to the G20′s recent request in this area.

The main sessions comprise brief presentations by leading experts and country officials, followed by discussants’ remarks and open discussion.
