An IMF-sponsored international conference on managing tax administration reforms was held on June 28-30, 2016, in Accra, Ghana.

The conference discussed countries' experiences in designing and managing tax administration reform programs. It focused on those countries covered by the Tax Policy and Administration Topical Trust Fund (TPA-TTF), set up to help low-income and lower-middle-income countries establish well-designed and -administered tax systems that generate sustainable revenue to pay for essential public services. The event marked five years of the Fund's operation.

Seth Terkper, Minister of Finance of Ghana, opened the conference by highlighting the main legislative and administrative initiatives that the Government of Ghana has taken in recent years to modernize the structure of the tax system and its administration, as well as the important role of the TPA-TTF and the IMF's Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD) in providing technical assistance.

Participants discussed proposed initiatives and the challenges they face.
