Opening Plenary FR

"This Conference is a milestone in the global fight against corruption. I am proud that the EITI’s member countries have committed to ensure that the ownership of the oil, gas and mining companies that operate in their countries will be open for anyone to see."  
- Fredrik Reinfeldt, EITI Chair

The Government of Indonesia co-hosted the Conference with the EITI as part of their wider anticorruption agenda. The opening plenary highlighted why beneficial ownership transparency is considered key to these efforts and what has been the progress and challenges so far.

 

Day One

"The Government of Indonesia and the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI) today convened the largest ever global meeting dedicated to beneficial ownership disclosure, one of the most important frontiers in global efforts to combat tax avoidance and corruption. Representatives from more than 45 countries are meeting to make new commitments and to discuss the practical steps needed to reveal the real owners of companies, with a particular focus on the oil, gas and mining industries."

Day Two

"Fifteen workshops, over a hundred speakers, more than 300 experts from more than fifty countries, more than 100,000 people engaging with the EITI online and trillions of dollars on the line. Welcome to the EITI’s Global Conference on “opening up ownership” – day two."
