The US Secretary of the Treasury is to visit Ireland later this month.

According to a statement released by her office, Janet Yellen will meet with Government officials and private sector representatives in Dublin on 31 October and 1 November for discussions on global tax policy priorities.

"While in Dublin, Secretary Yellen will focus on the historic OECD/G-20 Inclusive Framework agreement wherein virtually the entire global economy, 136 countries representing 94% of the world's GDP, have agreed to a new set of international tax rules, including a global minimum tax," the statement read.

While in Europe, Ms Yellen will also attend G20 meetings in Rome and the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, in Glasgow.

"Secretary Yellen will continue to reinforce the US commitment to multilateralism and advance US policy priorities on global tax policy, climate change, an inclusive economic recovery, and global health," according to the Treasury Department.
