Africa 

ITIC began its work in Africa in 2000 with a series of indirect tax studies and in-country workshops in Kenya and Ghana. 

The Africa Tax Dialogue, which ITIC founded in 2010, focuses on tax coordination within regional economic communities (RECs) in Africa. It brings together the Secretariats from the East African Community (EAC), Southern African Development Community (SADC), West African Economic and Monetary Union (UEMOA), and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to discuss their own tax coordination as well as the best practices of others.

ITIC also convenes issue- and country-specific workshops with finance and revenue officials across the continent – in 2018 this included workshops in Mozambique, South Africa and Tanzania.


Asia-Pacific

ITIC co-founded the Asia-Pacific Tax Forum (APTF) in 2005. ITIC's work in the Asia-Pacific region has evolved into a program of continuous engagement among public-sector and private-sector stakeholders, as well as academic experts.

ITIC has produced an extensive series of publications covering topical tax issues in the region, such as the ASEAN Excise Tax Reform: A Resource Manual, which has been translated into three languages.

In 2019 ITIC will convene country-level workshops in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Vietnam.


Eurasia

ITIC's Eurasia program dates back to the organization’s founding in 1993. It includes the Eurasia Tax Forum, which brings together senior officials from Ministries of Finance and Tax Administrations from the Eurasia region with international experts, academia, industry experts and multilateral organizations.

ITIC has also conducted a number of country-level studies over the years in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine. ITIC produced two such studies in Kazakhstan in 2018.


Middle East/North Africa

ITIC organized its  first Middle East/North Africa Tax Forum in 2010 in Doha, Qatar. It has since become the leading international gathering of senior government officials in tax policy and administration from the MENA region, academic and industry experts, and representatives from international organizations.

ITIC has been invited to collaborate with the Arab Monetary Fund (AMF) to organize the 2019 Arab Regional Tax Forum.

ITIC’s research agenda has focused on numerous topics of regional interest, including a multi-year program on Taxation of Islamic Finance.
