The Historic Africa-led UN Tax Convention – THE DECOLONIZATION OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME

African nations were all able to unite to champion the UN Tax Convention in an unprecedented effort to release themselves from the shackles of their (former) colonizers – at least for tax governance. But parts of the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Pacific, are not supporting the effort.
