A new OECD report says Governments should use tax systems to drive an inclusive growth agenda – one that seeks to boost growth while sharing the benefits more evenly within society.

The report – Tax Design for Inclusive Economic Growth – examines the role that tax systems play in promoting inclusive growth. Against a backdrop of historically high income and wealth inequality, this new OECD research underlines the key role that tax policy can play in not only supporting growth, but also in addressing distributional concerns.

*“Tax policy has a clear role to play in helping achieve strong, sustainable and balanced growth,”* OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría said. *“We are confident that the OECD’s latest research on tax design for inclusive growth can become part of a new tax policy contribution to the G20 agenda moving forward.”*

The OECD work will be a key subject of discussion during a ministerial-level G20 Tax Symposium on July 23 in Chengdu, China, just prior to the meeting of the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors on 23-24 July.
