美国财政部长珍妮特·耶伦(Janet Yellen)称这是一个“重大的、前所未有的”承诺。她说,全球最低税率将结束企业税收的竞争,并确保美国和世界各地的中产阶级和劳动人民的公平。


华盛顿,6月5日(新华社)——美国财政部长珍妮特·耶伦周六表示,七国集团(G7)已同意支持将全球最低税率达到至少15%的新规定。


耶伦在一份声明中称,这是一项“重大的、前所未有的”承诺。她说,全球最低税率将结束企业税收的逐级竞争,并确保美国和世界各地中产阶级和劳动人民的公平。


她表示:“通过为企业创造公平的竞争环境,鼓励各国在积极的基础上竞争,全球最低税率也将有助于全球经济繁荣。”


与此同时,英国财政部在一份声明中表示,按国家计算的全球最低公司税至少为15%的原则,为英国企业创造了更公平的竞争环境,并打击避税行为。


七国集团达成协议前约两周,美国财政部曾表示,全球最低税率应至少为15%,并指出最终税率可能更高。


七国集团财长会议于6月4日至5日在伦敦举行。

Calling it a "significant, unprecedented" commitment, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that the global minimum tax would end the race-to-the-bottom in corporate taxation, and ensure fairness for the middle class and working people in the United States and around the world.

WASHINGTON, June 5 (Xinhua) -- The Group of Seven (G7) industrialized nations have agreed to support new rules that will achieve a global minimum tax rate of at least 15 percent, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Saturday.

Calling it a "significant, unprecedented" commitment, Yellen said in a statement that the global minimum tax would end the race-to-the-bottom in corporate taxation, and ensure fairness for the middle class and working people in the United States and around the world.

"The global minimum tax would also help the global economy thrive, by leveling the playing field for businesses and encouraging countries to compete on positive bases," she said.

The British Treasury, meanwhile, said in a statement that the principle of at least 15 percent global minimum corporation tax operated on a country by country basis creates a more level playing field for British firms and cracks down on tax avoidance.

The G7 agreement came about two weeks after the U.S. Treasury Department said it had proposed that the global minimum tax rate should be at least 15 percent, noting that the final rate could go even higher.

The G7 Finance Ministers' meeting took place in London on June 4-5.
