Dear WTA members, observers and friends:

I’m pleased to circulate the latest newsletter, which contains a wealth of activity and achievement. It’s heartening to see that WTA members continued the fight for taxpayers in their countries during a tricky few years.
And now that things have opened up again, look out for further announcements for in-person events in the near future.
Please visit our website and our Facebook group and tell everyone about what you’re up to. Stay in touch with me and our fantastic Secretary General Cristina Berechet so that we can showcase your work in this newsletter and inspire our network more broadly.

WTA Chairman’s Update #9

Section: Letter from the Chairman / WTA Blog
9 August 2021 | New Zealand Taxpayers’ Union / New Zealand

Dear WTA members, observers and friends:

We’re hopefully coming out of the other side of the pandemic. There may be more lockdowns to come, but as the vaccine take up improves I hope we can put the last 18 months behind us and get the economic recovery at the front of the agenda.

Here in the UK, we’ve found out that the cost of the pandemic to taxpayers is around £400 billion so far. Throughout the last year, all we’ve heard is the lazy assertion that taxes will have to go up to pay for it. But we know that’s not the case – we need politicians to show spending restraint and focus on economic growth.

There will be many other challenges in your countries. Whatever those challenges are, our organisations are needed now as much as ever. So let’s keep swapping ideas and sharing experiences. There’s some fantastic work going on across the world and we can all learn from one another.
