Peter Chrenko

In my new position I will build on my and PwC experiences from various projects where we helped governments in the CEE region to modernise their tax systems. Countries where we did our job benefit from higher tax collection and lower tax administration costs. Also, the tax payer benefits from the system thanks to an easier tax administration. Czech competitiveness is improving as is its picture in the world.
