Tax revenues have increased steadily in African countries where there is economic growth. It was confirmed by the statistical data published by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Eight countries, which were valuated, – Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Mauritius, Morocco, Rwanda, Senegal, South African Republic and Tunisia – reported on tax revenues in the range of 16.1 to 31.3% in proportion to GDP. In general, the ratio of taxes to GDP constantly grows since 2000.

OECD in cooperation with the African Union Commission (AUC) presented the research at the African Tax Administration Forum (ATAF).
