The talks between the two finance ministers focused on international tax policy. On the one hand, they discussed the OECD project on taxing the digital economy. Both Switzerland and Ireland are members of the OECD Inclusive Framework, which is currently developing the new rules for international corporate taxation. On the other hand, Ueli Maurer and Paschal Donohoe discussed the EU's latest plans for a corporate tax system fit for the 21st century, which includes digital and environmental taxes. The challenges for the Eurogroup were also addressed. Paschal Donohoe has been president of this group for the past year.
Furthermore, the two finance ministers spoke about the post-Brexit relationship between the EU and the United Kingdom.
