Fiji's Attorney General and Minister for Economy,Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum today opened the Pacific Islands Tax Administrators Association (PITAA) Secretariat office in Suva.
The AG highlighted the need for Pacific Island countries to work together given the limitation of resources in the economies for a better collaborative result.
“We should not work in isolation but rather share information and share intelligence so that we are able to comply with international best practices,” Sayed Khaiyum said.
“We need to build upon our resilience and also as a region recognise our issues to be able to have that level of exposure.”
The AG adds that PITAA now has built an environment in which Pacific Island Countries tax administration can meet freely annually to share and discuss their views and desires for their individual administration.
From its humble beginning 13 years ago, the Association has gradually gained relevance, importance and recognition with an established membership of sixteen Pacific Island Countries and Timor-Leste.
