Geoffrey Cone did not agree with the social media’s report of New Zealand being a tax haven. Cone argues that the nation does not meet the OECD Requirements and also the features that a tax harbor country possess that include highly privatized banking, and the imposing of minimal or no tax to its citizens. Mr. Cone said the reason why New Zealand has been experiencing an increase in foreign n trust is because of its safe, stable and its high quality judiciary sector. New Zealand has also built its reputation positively.
