From the OECD website we learn that:

“06/03/2015 – Following the recent meetings of regional networks on BEPS held in South East Asia (Korea 12-13 February), Latin America and the Caribbean (Peru, 26-27 February), and with Francophone countries (Gabon, 27 February), working closely with relevant regional tax organisations, a regional network meeting in Eurasia was held in Ankara, Turkey on 5-6 March. These meetings form part of the implementation of the Strategy for Deepening Developing Country Engagement in the BEPS Project. This approach to followed a request from the G-20 to enhance the engagement of developing countries and was supported by G-20 leaders in November 2014. Twenty senior tax officials from 6 jurisdictions participated in the event, which was hosted by the OECD Muiltilateral Tax Center in Ankara. Discussions focused on BEPS issues of particular relevance for the region and the development of ‘toolkits’ to assist the implementation of solutions to counter BEPS.  Business and civil society representatives participated in open sessions of the meeting and provided their perspectives on the BEPS Project.”
