In late 2020 ASR participated in two groundbreaking virtual summits on Digital Services Taxation. The US-based Coalition of Services Industries hosted a three-day forum, during which ASR Director Jane Drake-Brockman hosted a panel with two experts: Patrick Low, Fellow at the Asia Global Institute, and Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, Director at the European Centre for International Political Economy.
Mr Low presented again at a separate virtual summit hosted by ASR member The Institute for International Trade at the University of Adelaide, alongside Nigel Cory, Associate Director at the Information and Technology Innovation Foundation. Several ASR Directors and members were in attendance, alongside senior personnel from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Documents and presentations from these summits are now available to download, via the links below.
