Seminar

Just before Benno Ndulu (former Governor of the Central Bank of Tanzania, Visiting Professor at the Blavatnik School of Government and Senior Advisor to Digital Pathways at Oxford) passed away, he had been due to present his recent working paper at the inaugural event of a new seminar series for Digital Pathways at Oxford. It was to have featured his groundbreaking work on how to tax digital systems in Africa. He was immensely excited by this work and its policy implications – his aim was that it would guide policymakers making difficult decisions to address the impacts of digitalisation on the economy.

To honour his wish that this work be widely disseminated, we are glad to invite you to join Stefan Dercon, Professor of Economic Policy at the Blavatnik School, and Cornel Joseph, co-author of the paper and lecturer at the University of Dar Es Salaam, to discuss the paper ‘Fiscal regimes and digital transformation in Sub-Saharan Africa’, with Ngaire Woods, Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government. There will be opportunities to ask questions during the seminar.

Please note: This event will be held online via Zoom, and also livestreamed on our YouTube channel. Register below to receive joining instructions.
