Over 250 foreign delegates are expected to take part in a three-day global conference on Tax and Inequality beginning here from December 7.

Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee will inaugurate the conference.

"The ITD (Income Tax Dialogue) conference will provide a unique and timely opportunity to address an important question facing each country, that is, to what extent taxation can be seen as part of the solution to growing inequalities in income and wealth," the finance ministry said in a statement.

Apart from Mukherjee, other renowned speakers at the conference will include Min Zhu, Deputy Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF); Otaviano Canuto, Vice-President of the World Bank; and Rintaro Tamaki, Deputy Secretary-General of OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development).

More than 250 foreign delegates are expected to take part at the conference, the statement said, adding that it is likely to see participation from 100 countries.
