In the run-up to the G20 summits in South Korea and France, Chatham House, in cooperation with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), will be hosting a roundtable discussion on the proposal of a currency transaction levy to fund international development.

The meeting will provide the first opportunity to gauge not only the technical and legal feasibility of the levy but also the political interest by the two upcoming G20 hosts, South Korea and France. Other key issues on the G20 agenda such as developmental models and financial regulation will also be discussed.

Attendance is by invitation only.
