First Roundtable of Re-Imagine Europa’s Economy Task Force 



21 October 2021, online, 14h00 – 17h30 

Since most of the current tax systems were conceived for the economy of the twentieth century and are therefore unsuitable both from the point of view of taxpayers and to meet the needs of governments, the Re-Imagine Economy Task Force aims to build a blueprint for an ideal fiscal system and a fairer and more competitive economic model for Europe in the 21st century. The first high-level meeting of the key experts will focus on reflecting and sharing participants’ ideas about the future of the European economy and tax system.
