“The content itself was highly beneficial, relevant and eye opening to my work and interests. It was good to be made aware of the global issues surrounding ecommerce and its effects on VAT. The discussions on this topic and the effects e-commerce has on VAT in developed countries was an eye opener and something we as a small country can learn from and prepare for as we move into becoming a developed nation.”

“The webinar provided me an opportunity to learn more about GST on e-commerce. The country experiences which were shared provide me with insight as to how my country can go about implementing GST on e-commerce. Also, I now know that I can request technical assistance from PITAA, ADB, OECD and the other countries within the Pacific region regarding this agenda.”
