Davos Debate: Tackling the digital tax dilemma


As the United States and France agree to a truce in their dispute over the French tax on big digital companies, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire joins a special FRANCE 24 debate from the World Economic Forum in Davos on how the international rulebook on this issue needs to be overhauled.

FRANCE 24’s business editor Stephen Carroll discusses the moral and practical issues at stake with French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire, OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria, Transparency International chief Delia Ferreira Rubio and Columbia Law School professor Katharina Pistor.
