The IMF's Mark Plant has an interesting piece on the key tax reform priorities facing African governments. Nothing we have not highlighted in the Zambian case, but it is interesting to see that Mozambique is cited as a "country success" worth studying further in this area :
Governments in Africa have a prime objective—to reduce poverty. To improve living standards and create jobs, they need to provide their citizens with better health care, better education, more infrastructure. They need to build hospitals, schools, and to pay doctors, nurses, teachers.All this costs money. How to pay for this—in a way that is both fair and efficient—is a question that all governments face.
