The Role of Media in International Taxation
The Role of the Media in International Taxation

In this era of wide-reaching social media, fake news and the speedy dissemination of information, we thought it’d be interesting to take an in-depth look at the role of online media—both as news and social media interactions—in the field of international taxation.

Media in International Taxation

On Wednesday, September 9th at 15:00 UK time, we were joined by three leading international tax journalists from Bloomberg, Tax Analysts and Law360/MLex who shared their perspectives on their specific roles in the various ongoing international tax discussions, policy making in general, and relaying information to industry professionals and the general public in an easy-to-understand, objective and interesting way.

This event was one-of-a-kind and shed plenty of light on media relations, the power of social media and plenty more.
