BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Union plans to adopt a blacklist of tax havens in December, Estonia’s finance minister said on Tuesday at the end of a meeting of EU finance ministers in Brussels.
“Our intention is to approve the list in December,” Toomas Toniste, whose country holds the EU’s rotating presidency told reporters. He added that he hoped that all EU states would agree.
