[Webinar Notice] Fiscal Countermeasures Addressing COVID-19: a Comparative Survey

Mar 1, 2021

As the world enters the second year of the pandemic, states are rolling out different budget and tax strategies so as to strike a balance between the increased needs of the welfare and the long run sustainability of the economic efforts: most of these measures address taxation. On one side it is necessary to increase the amount of resources available, but on the other money has to be found in ways compatible with the (expected) economic growth in 2021.

The purpose of the webinar, promoted by the China University of Political Sciences and Law (CUPL) and the University of Ferrara (UNIFE), is to compare the approaches adopted by China and other Asian counties to COVID-19 response in the field of budget and taxation (law) with the ways and means adopted in Europe, finding similarities and divergences and eventually arguing whether regional answers are adequate or not for the months to come.

The webinar is co-organized by the Fiscal, Tax and Financial Law Institute of Civil, Commercial and Economic Law School of CUPL, Department of Law of UNIFE and Center for Fiscal and Tax Law of CUPL, and will be held on March 12 and 13, 2021.

The webinar is also supported by the Program for Young Innovative Research Team of China University of Political Science and Law (20CXTD08).
