PANA Committee amendments

We are pleased to provide our comments to certain amendments tabled for the PANA Committee draft report and recommendations. The report and recommendations are, overall, well-balanced and highlight the importance of transparency. However, we fear that some of the tabled amendments risk distracting the report from its objectives, whilst bringing no or limited practical impact.

We have contributed to the PANA Committee’s work, as well as to the transparency discussion. For example, in July 2016 we published our template for public Country by Country reports. Moreover, on 6 March 2017 our CEO, Olivier Boutellis-Taft, participated at a public hearing of the PANA Committee.
