Attend the closing session of the Central Bank Digital Currencies: International and Domestic Challenges online conference on CBDC and Fiscal Operations

Most fiscal operations have a monetary impact. Yet, the programmability of CBDC would allow to integrate fiscal operations into payments to facilitate new approaches to taxation or benefit distribution. It may require a new setting where e.g. the central bank extends the authority to program CBDC to the national revenue agency.
