Conference in numbers
- Sessions and partner events
Hosted by the Government of France on 18-19 June 2019 in Paris, the 8th EITI Global Conference gathered more than 1000 stakeholders from around the globe to take stock of progress and priorities in extractives transparency.
Centered around the theme "Open Data, Build Trust", the EITI Global Conference addressed how extractives governance can be harnessed for inclusive development. The programme featured a wide variety of sessions and speakers to reflect the diverse, multi-stakeholder interests in the sector, with a particular focus around mainstreaming extractives data into government and company systems so as to facilitate openness, improve decision-making and enhance trust.
High-level speakers from EITI implementing countries, supporting countries, extractive sector companies, civil society organisations and partner organisations were invited to make short statements describing their commitment to the EITI and to resource governance.
