In his speech, Deputy Secretary-General Ma Guohua believed that since the First Summer Academy for Tax Lawyers was held in 2014, it has been successfully held for three times, and the social effect is obvious to all, with remarkable achievements, and more than 500 graduates have played a positive role in serving the economic and social development of various regions, optimizing the relationship between taxpayers and taxpayers, improving the tax compliance of enterprises, and implementing the strategy of ruling taxes according to law and ruling the country according to the law. The strategy of ruling taxes and the country according to law is playing a positive role in all aspects. In his opinion, this is closely related to the country's active "implementation of the principle of tax law", the process of reforming the fiscal and taxation system with great initiatives and the unprecedentedly active tax law service market, and at the same time, it is also indispensable to the concern and support of all sectors of the society, and more importantly, it is also indispensable to the great amount of work and unselfish dedication of the lecturing experts and leaders, and the staffs of the main organizers and contractors. In particular, Hwuason Law Firm and Mr. Liu Tianyong, as the initiator and main organizer of the Summer Academy, have devoted a lot of efforts and invested a lot in human resources and materials over the past three years, and have made outstanding contributions to the development of China's tax lawyer industry and the improvement of the quality of tax-related professional services. At the same time, he believes that the tax lawyers trained by the three Summer Academys are still far from the demand of the rapid development of tax-related professional services in different places. The National Lawyers Association decided to co-organize the Fourth Summer Academy again, with the main purpose of continuing to promote the development of tax-related business and the improvement of the business level of lawyers, to better promote the innovation and upgrading of tax-related professional services, and to serve the construction of the rule of law in taxation.

He congratulated the two associations for the successful opening of the Fourth Summer Academy and the accepted colleges; secondly, he expressed his thanks to the leaders and experts for coming to the opening ceremony and attaching great importance to the Summer Academy. Secondly, he expressed his "thanks" for the presence of leaders and experts at the opening ceremony and the importance attached to the Summer Academy, as well as the meticulous and fruitful organization work of the contractors, Hwuason Law Firm and Huatax Taxation Firm, in the past two months. He also thanked the organizers, Hwuason Law Firm and Huatax Taxation Firm, for the meticulous and effective organization work in the past two months. He believed that with the publication of the State Administration of Taxation's Measures for the Supervision of Tax-Related Professional Services (Trial), the tax-related professional services market has been further liberalized with it, especially to the lawyers' market, which can be promising for professional services and innovations in the tax-related services market. Finally, he hopes that the two tax-related professional forces can realize "interaction". Cross-border cooperation opens up a win-win space, and the communication and interaction between tax lawyers and tax agents can cause thinking, spark innovation, and promote the development of joint business.

Figure: Prof. Liu Jianwen's Speech

In his speech, Professor Liu Jianwen believes that modern society is an era of rule of law, and it is the era of the emergence of fiscal law, and the modernization of rule of law urgently needs the modernization of the fiscal system. The traditional fiscal law belongs to the category of economic law, and in recent years, under the efforts of all scholars, it has come out of a rationale of its own development. The long-term stability of the country needs institutional safeguards, the fiscal and taxation legal system in China at this stage also belongs to the short board in the construction of the legal system, the Third Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee and the Fourth Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee have constantly emphasized the principle of tax law, and the construction of fiscal and taxation legal system can be expected in the future. At the same time, the modern society is also an era of learning and continuing education, and the educational development of the fiscal and tax law can not be separated from the continuous learning of the university people. The progress of the rule of law needs new knowledge and new theories, and we would like to thank those who have quietly contributed to the great progress of the development of all of us.

Figure: Prof. Shi Zhengwen's Speech

Finally, Prof. Shi Zhengwen delivered a speech, in which he believed that the release of Circular No. 13 of the State Administration of Taxation (SAT) marked that tax-related professional services had entered a new period and a new era, and that it was the key to the establishment of a tax-related professional services system in the process of modernization of the national governance to match it. Secondly, in the past, people's understanding of tax-related professional services was biased, believing that lawyers could not engage in tax agency business, tax agents were not clear about their own positioning and professional requirements, and tax-related services were far away from those in developed countries. In his opinion, law, accounting and taxation cannot be "pieced together", their core is the professional service of tax law, and the ultimate goal of tax law is to promote the effective compliance of tax law. In his view, the summer academy, which brings together tax lawyers, tax agents and graduate students in tax law, and brings tax and law together, is an initiative of extraordinary significance.

In tax practice, the tax authorities have greater elasticity in discretionary power, and there are phenomena of arbitrary law enforcement, selective law enforcement, emotional law enforcement, etc. These are mainly due to the bias in the understanding of the connotation of the tax law by all the parties concerned, the existence of flaws in the tax legal system, and other comprehensive reasons. Tax authorities should be vigorously strengthening the construction of the rule of law in taxation, strengthening the basic construction of the enforcement level of tax law enforcement personnel, and only by continuously improving the business level of law enforcement personnel can the tax law be implemented; secondly, the construction of the rule of law in taxation is a key matter. These mainly include the implementation of the list system of authority and responsibility for tax enforcement, the improvement of the system of public lawyers, the establishment of the system of general counsel, the deepening of the reform of the tax administrative examination and approval system, the standardization of tax administrative discretion, and the strict management of the qualification of law enforcement, etc.; the third is the construction of the tax work norms.
