The EESC is a strong advocate of a fair, well-administered and sustainable development policy at EU level. It is also very committed to the cause of greater tax justice. In recent years, questions have been raised as to whether the international tax policies of the Member States, in particular the concluding of certain types of double taxation agreements, are consistent with EU development policy objectives.

During the meeting, the representatives of the EU and Central American Advisory Groups discussed the mandate and composition of the Advisory Groups as envisaged by the Trade and Sustainable Development Title, as well as possible ways of their cooperation and topics for future discussions. The participants were of the view that joint meetings of the Advisory Groups held back-to-back to the annual meetings of the Board on Trade and Sustainable Development and Civil Society Dialogue Forum provide a useful framework for a structured, in-depth discussion between the civil society representatives from EU and Central America. They also concurred that the Parties should facilitate presence of the Advisory Groups and other civil society representatives in the annual meetings. The participants adopted a Joint Declaration which was presented to the Civil Society Dialogue Forum and the Board on 19 November 2014.
