Ministers then met senior officials of the IMF, OECD and World Bank, and requested precise actions to enhance IMF policy advice and technical assistance, broaden global initiatives to reform tax rules in order to change treaties, abolish the World Bank Doing Business criterion which encourages lower tax rates, and ensure that all IFC-sponsored projects pay full tax in beneficiary countries.
