EFTR is a campaign-oriented organisation, which focuses on the active promotion of tax reductions all over Europe. Our main action therefore is public policy campaigning and influencing of decision makers as well as the public at large. Of course research and networking is a key for exerting influence but the focus is on the gaining public support and achieving our aim of tax reductions in Europe. We plan to have two campaigns a year and communicate them via the Internet and the media at large. Complementing this we will commission projects to clearly and visible illustrate the urgency of the problem of outrageous taxations levels in Europe.

ETR is clearly advocating the reduction of the costs of the public sector to a maximum of 40 percent of GDP already including state sponsored social security charges and state owned industrial acitivity.

ETR strongly hold the view that in time of global market pressure is on Europe to reduce it almost immoral taxation level. Europe can not sustain taxation levels of over 50% when the US and Japan and most other competitors have significantly lower burdens on their people and business. This has to change now.
