erosion of their tax bases by entering into multilateral agreements and
reforming municipal law, including transfer pricing regulations. In 2013, the
OECD released two reports capturing the debate in this field. The lack of
uniform standards and ancillary issues of dispute resolution and tax treaty

expected to identify and deal with the key problems in this area and suggest
mitigation measures as well.
