Opening Up Ownership: Africa

Harnessing the potential of the extractive sector

Africa EITI Conference on Beneficial Ownership Transparency  

Knowing who owns the companies that operate in the oil, gas and mining sectors is key to strengthening natural resource governance. It has also proven to be important to improve the investment climate and promote responsible business conduct. Through the EITI and other global and regional efforts to tackle the challenges posed by hidden ownership, African countries are taking the lead in improving beneficial ownership transparency in extractives. The conference will engage various stakeholders from government, civil society and companies to seek a way forward on Beneficial Ownership in Africa.

The event will be held at King Fahd Conference Centre.
