Remote Simultaneous Interpretation

The “Good Financial Governance in Africa II [GFG] Programme”, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development [BMZ], promotes transparency, accountability and domestic resource mobilisation in Africa. Seeking to improve good financial governance in the action fi elds tax policy and administration, budget reform, external audit and legislative oversight, the programme works with four regional public finance networks that offer country-specific and technical advice for their members: The African Tax Administration Forum [ATAF], the Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative [CABRI], the African Organisation of Public Accounts Committees [AFROPAC] and the African Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions [AFROSAI]. As an additional cross-cutting element, the programme supports efforts to strengthen an African voice in global debates on topics of good financial governance.

In the area of tax policy and tax administration, the African Tax Administration Forum [ATAF] is the key partner of the GFG in Africa programme. Founded in 2009 as an association of currently 40 African tax administrations, ATAF strives to provide a platform to improve the performance of tax administration in Africa, driven by the firm conviction that better tax administrations will enhance economic growth, increase accountability of the states to their citizens and mobilise domestic resources more effectively.

  • Remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) services for ATAF’s training courses/ events;
  • Possible simultaneous interpretation services and all relevant interpretation and sound equipment and booths etc., should the event in question be organised physically in South Africa.

Unless held physically, the events will take place virtually on Zoom platform.
