Anti-illicit Trade Forum 2019

Time 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue MGALLERY Nay Pyi Taw by Sofitel Hotel
Description Given the lack of data and information on Myanmar's illicit trade activities, EuroCham has missioned a report on AIT activities in Myanmar and will host the Anti-Illicit Trade Forum 2019, as it recognises how valuable information can be as a tool to raise awareness and mobilise action. This second edition of Anti-illicit Trade Forum will take place in Nay Pyi Taw on Thursday 19th of September 2019.

The objective of the event is to present the report findings, as well as Eurocham's concerns as the EuroCham Myanmar Anti-illicit Trade Advocacy Group and industry representatives to relevant stakeholders and media.

This event, on a highly topical issue, is the only one in Myanmar, and is meant to assess the Anti-Illicit Trade societal and environmental impacts and its perspectives; The in-depth discussions will strive to improve the knowledge and understanding of the regulatory environment and economic circumstances that enable illicit trade and provide recommendations on priority areas.

The panels will include high-level government officials, key experts from international organisations and academics, as well as leading private sector representatives to share their experience on the ground.

An 'Anti-illicit Trade Experience Zone' in the form of an exhibition will be displayed for the attendees. The physical products like counterfeit medicine, consumer goods and other products, will be accompanied with explanatory images and figures in order to assess the extent of illicit trade in Myanmar.

The private sector, through The American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (AmCham), recognizes the importance of shifting policies in the Philippines in our goal to achieving inclusive growth. The chamber also acknowledges the sheer amount of effort needed in attempting to reform our tax laws.

In line with this, AmCham's Manufacturing Committee presents "Tax Talks 2019" a briefing giving updates on the Comprehensive Tax Reform Program (CTRP) -- where we are now, what has happened so far, and what will happen soon.

This briefing is geared towards providing a platform for public and private stakeholders, civil society groups, and the academe to discuss and expound on the intricacies of the shift, and the opportunities and threats resulting from that shift. It also serves as an avenue to build partnerships among key stakeholders to seize these opportunities and subsist these threats.

The Package 3 of the Comprehensive Tax Reform Program of the Department of Finance aims to introduce vital reforms to promote the development of a just, equitable, and efficient real property valuation system. The Financial Services and Taxes & Tariffs Committee of AmCham will be hosting Deputy Executive Director Jose Arnold M. Tan of the Bureau of Local Government Finance (BLGF), Department of Finance.

Package 3 aims to address the following systemic problems:

  • Rampant outdated valuations used for governmental purposes, especially for national and local taxation;
  • Cost overruns and foregone revenues due to low valuations uses: overvaluation when government pays, undervaluation when government collects;
  • Multiple, overlapping valuations in different government agencies;
  • Absence of a single agency responsible for ensuring that valuations are in accordance with international standards; and
  • Absence of a comprehensive real property electronic database.

In March this year, it was reported that the Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD) no longer has enough water supply for its more than 190,000 customers after most of its ground water wells and one of its dams have totally dried up due to the mild El Niño. Another MCWD-owned dam, the Jaclupan weir dam in Talisay City, had reduced water production by 57 percent.

In April, the City Council declared a state of calamity in Cebu City due to the effects of the El Niño weather phenomenon. The city has since spent P27 million for the purchase of hoses and drums as well as financial assistance extended to farmers, whose crops were destroyed by the extreme heat.

Without any long-term solution, Metro Cebu is most likely to face a water crisis by 2023.

Let's hear from Metro Cebu Water District General Manager, Eugenio Singson Jr. as his agency finds ways to a long-term solution to this crisis.
