President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf launched Liberia's first EITI Report covering the period 1 July 2007 - 30 June 2008 on 9 February. Liberia becomes the 11th EITI reporting country and the first to include forestry in their report. In her launch statement, the President referred to the efforts to pass a LEITI Act to oblige all relevant parties to comply with EITI reporting requirements. In attendance was the whole LEITI multi-stakeholder committee, several Cabinet Ministers, and the US Ambassador.
The full Report is available on the LEITI Website. Copies will distributed to all parliamentarians, ministries and agencies of Government, libraries of schools and universities. A detail plan for disseminating and discussing the report in Monrovia and in the various counties will be circulated shortly.
