Quote of the week by Jonás Fernandez, MEP and S&D spokesperson on economic affairs
“It is shameful how Western corporations use dodgy tax schemes to defraud some of the world's poorest countries out of their fair share of tax revenue, money they desperately need to pay for education, health care and infrastructure. Once again, big accountancy companies masterminded the treaty shopping of big corporations at the expense of citizens. Clearly, tougher regulations and better oversight are needed to crack down on tax crimes.”
Time for the summer break.

Online, our activity continues. The call for proposals on the priorities our Group should engage in during the next 5 years is still open.
Therefore, we invite everyone who has an idea or an initiative to get in touch with us by adding a suggestion here, on our Europe Together platform. The ideas will be collected and submitted to the S&D Group’s bureau.
