La’o Hamutuk will present an analysis of the Draft Law, and we have invited representatives from the Ministry of Finance and UN Women to share their perspectives. Participants will also be able to express their ideas, which we hope will help improve the tax reform process before the law is approved by the Council of Ministers and sent to Parliament for debate and enactment.
