Harvard Law School's International Tax Program, working with a group of universities and international institutions, co-sponsored the second annual Southern African Tax Institute ("SATI") at the University of Pretoria from June 2 through June 27.
SATI provides training, research and technical assistance in the areas of tax policy and tax administration for government officials in southern Africa. The month-long program offered courses on comparative tax policy, comparative tax administration, public finance and economics of taxation, tax analysis and revenue forecasting, international taxation, and value-added taxation. More than 80 government tax officials from 16 countries participated in these courses.
Funding for SATI was provided by the Harvard Law School, the British Council's Department for International Development, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Zolt-Gilburne Foundation.
