According to the April 4 issue of L’Osservatore Romano, the Holy See is now on the Italian “white list” of States that accept exchanges of information in fiscal matters. 

The recognition is effective as of the publication, on April 3, 2017, of an official decree of the Italian Minister of the Economy and Finances. According to the news agency I.Media (April 4, 2017), this is the result of the implementation on October 15, 2016, of the agreement between the Holy See and Italy in fiscal matters.

Several days earlier, on March 28, Cardinal George Pell emphasized in speaking to the Italian news agency ANSA that “the reform of the Vatican finances has made substantial progress with respect to transparency.” The Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy of the Vatican recalled that “even though difficulties remain, our accounts are exact and the controls are adequate.”
