Beneficial ownership transparency: Milestones on the road to 2020 - Highlights from EITI countries

More than 50 EITI countries have published their plans for how to disclose the real owners of companies in their extractive sector by January 2020. This includes building an institutional and legal framework, putting in place reporting processes and creating registers to host the BO data. Implementing countries will need substantial advice and political support in turning these commitments into reality. This brief highlights progress made so far by a selection of EITI countries in “opening up ownership”.

The content for this publication was drafted by national secretariats for the EITI Chair Awards for Progress on Beneficial Ownership.
