President Joe Biden comments on Agreement of 130 Countries to Support a Global Minimum Tax for World’s Largest Corporations

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Today, July 1st, 2021, marks an important step in moving the global economy forward to be more equitable for workers and middle-class families in the United States and around the world. I want to thank all the signatories of the Paris OECD statement — 130 countries — for coming together to endorse a global minimum tax rate of at least 15 percent.

These nations make up more than 90 percent of the world’s economy, which puts us in striking distance of full global agreement to halt the race to the bottom for corporate taxes.

United States President Joe Biden.

After a pair of strikeouts, Lujano moved to third on Cooper Hummel’s single up the middle. Zach Green just missed a three-run homer and settled for an RBI double off the wall to trim the deficit to 3-2. Louisville got out of the inning when Matt Lipka struck out.
