The exchange of views will address the revision of the Code of Conduct of 8 November 2022, which broadened its scope to include not only preferential tax measures but also 'tax features of general application' and the effectiveness of the Code of Conduct for the EU's work to fight tax evasion and avoidance. Furthermore, it aims to deepen the institutional cooperation between the Code of Conduct Group for Business Taxation and the FISC Subcommittee.

She has extensive work experience in international taxation and also served as chair of the OECD Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes. This will be the third time the FISC Subcommittee holds and exchange of views with the Chair of the Code of Conduct Group for Business Taxation.
