On October 20-22, the annual WTS Global Meeting was held in Berlin. The best tax consultants from more than 100 countries all over the world came together to take part in the conference.
Unfortunately, Senior Partner of Alexander Minin was not able to come in-person to Berlin due to important court proceedings in Ukraine. But Alexander managed to have a live videocall with the participants of the meeting.
As Alexander noted in his speech, “that is a good sign in my view. It means that the courts are working, we are working, our office is working, people are here, even if the majority are on remote base. Sometimes there is no electricity, sometimes the Internet is not properly functioning. Anyway, we work, and we work for the better future”.
During the speech, Alexander also expressed his gratitude to WTS Global and all member firms for their support and noted that “Ukraine stands, fights and wins. We believe that we start the new world, the global transformations in many aspects of the economy and in general in the political, scientific spheres as well. And we thank everybody for supporting us.”
Alexander’s speech became the most important and emotional part of the meeting and brought the participants to a standing ovation. WTS Global member firms from all around the world expressed their support for Ukraine and the ’ team.
This year’s WTS Global Meeting was truly special. Despite the difficult situation, the member firms came together once again after 2 years of covid restrictions and were able to share their experience, new achievements and discuss ways of developing the global tax practice.
