G8 summit fails to deliver on tax reforms

Leaders do not take firmer action to tighten rules on tax evasion and money laundering.

    The main focus of the second day of talks at the G8 conference has been about cracking down on international tax evasion.

    Leaders want to keep pressing for legislation to cut down on the criminal use of shell companies.

    However, they did not take firmer action for now to tighten rules on tax evasion and money laundering.
