Italy, Switzerland to cooperate against tax evasion

Monti said Italy and Switzerland are considering double taxation and information exchange to fight tax evasion.

Speaking after his meeting with Switzerland's President and Finance Minister Eveline Widmer-Schlumpf, Italian prime minister Mario Monti said fighting tax evasion is a goal shared by Italy and Switzerland and "a priority for the Italian government". Monti went on to say that he was "very pleased to announce the good progress of the ongoing meeting of the bilateral working group tasked with discussing various financial and fiscal issues and suggesting possible operating solutions fully compatible with the EU discipline, especially in the fields of double taxation and information exchange"
