Section: Members Highlights / WTA Blog
14 June 2019


Many thanks to the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance and Tax and Super Australia, especially to Tim Andrews, for hosting and organizing the 17th World Taxpayers’ Conference & 7th Friedman Conference in Sydney in May 2019.  More than 460 people form over 30 countries attended the conference (including four delegates from South-America) thanks in part to scholarships offered by the National Taxpayers Union, Americans for Tax Reform and Atlas Network.

All this wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of Melanie Harvie, Troy Lanigan, former chair of WTA, and John O’Oconnell the new Chairman and President of the World Taxpayers Associations. Thank you to all who took the time and resources to attend and participate.

The next WTA Conference will be hosted by Contribuables Associes, the French Taxpayers Association,  in Paris in 2021.
