WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen urged Irish Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe on Wednesday to take a “once in a generation opportunity” for a global tax deal that stops a race to the bottom on corporate tax rates, the Treasury said in a statement.

Treasury stated that Yellen expressed appreciation to Ireland for its constructive involvement in the OECD Tax Reform talks. The two ministers also agreed to continue close communication about the matter.
