Gurría: ‘Bermuda Has Gone The Extra Mile’

January 25, 2019

While speaking on a panel about taxation, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría praised Premier David Burt and Bermuda for aligning the island to “international best practice” and implementing automatic exchange of information.

Speaking at a panel entitled ‘Rethinking Taxes: Creating a Fair and Balanced System’ at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland this week, Mr Gurría recognised the presence of Premier David Burt saying he has “gone the extra mile.”

Mr Gurria [around 13 minutes into the video below] said, “I would like to recognise the presence of the Premier of Bermuda, a country – he’s gone the extra mile, a lot of political courage in order to align his country to these international best practice.”

He also mentioned Bermuda again [27 minutes in video] saying that as far as automatic exchange of information “you have been so important, and practicing in Bermuda, but also leading the charge.”
