Building an international tax system that is transparent, efficient and fair, will serve our economies, our governments and our citizens, said OECD Secretary-General at the G20 summit in St. Petersburg.

Remarks by Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General, G20 summit | St. Petersburg, 5 September 2013

President Putin, Heads of State and Government, Ministers, Colleagues,

The emphasis that the Russian Presidency has placed on returning to appropriate levels of growth demands an acceleration of the structural reform agenda in all G20 countries. It involves a gradual normalization of the policy stance in advanced economies, while keeping in mind the spill-over effects; it has to address the still unacceptably high levels of unemployment and the growing inequalities; it will require continuous commitment by G20 members to keep markets open for trade and investment and for us to complete the repair of the financial sector.
