Presentation of the report's key findings 


In November 2018, ministers and deputy ministers of Latin American countries met on the margin of the Global Forum plenary meeting held in Punta del Este, Uruguay, to discuss how to use exchange of information to fight tax fraud and corruption. As a conclusion of the meeting, the Punta del Este Declaration was signed. In the Declaration, signatories agreed to lead by example in tackling illicit financial flows through increased international tax co-operation.

The Tax Transparency in Latin America report is a key output of the Punta del Este Declaration. It is the first report of its kind, dedicated to the issue of tax transparency in Latin America. It will be published annually to inform decision makers and citizens on where the region stands, and the concrete progress made by Latin American countries on tax transparency.
