Presentation of actions
The Cercle de Réflexion et d’Échange des Dirigeants des Administrations Fiscales, is an international association of 31 tax administration executives (30 members and 1 associate member). Founded in 1982 and with 40 years of experience, CREDAF is recognized as a major player both in the support of its members and in the partnerships it has established with international organizations for which it has become a full partner.
Since 2018, CREDAF has adopted a new strategy during the 34th General Assembly held in Montrouis (Haiti). This is based on 3 pillars:
– a multi-year work theme broken down into annual sub-themes; this makes it possible to give coherence to the actions carried out and to deepen the work;
– a renewed governance based on an enlarged board (representatives of geographical areas) and frequently consulted;
– partnerships developed to implement concrete actions and carry the key messages of member countries in various forums.
Each year, CREDAF organizes nearly ten international events: annual conference, seminars for directors, working groups, training seminars and other thematic meetings. Each CREDAF event is led by high-level experts working in the tax administrations of its members. A rich and complete documentation is made available to the participants on the topic treated, and all the debates result in written summaries.
CREDAF has established contacts with international organizations for which it has become a full partner. To date, it has signed six cooperation agreements with CIAT (2013), the OECD (2015), the former UNDP Development Strategy and Public Finance Unit (2016), the OIF (2017), FERDI (2017) and the École des Mines de Paris (2017).
In addition to these partnerships, CREDAF is a founding member of the Network of Tax Organisations (NTO) and is among the supporting organizations of the Addis Ababa Tax Initiative (ATI).
These partnerships allow the implementation of concrete actions for the benefit of its member countries.
CREDAF is also and above all a privileged framework for the exchange of experiences, the sharing of good practices and the opportunity to deepen or set up regional and international cooperation, in order to help its members to better face the new challenges. All this in a spirit of conviviality and fraternity recognized by all. I am proud and honored of the responsibilities entrusted to me within this beautiful international organization that is CREDAF.
