Guatemala joined the EITI since 2011. While implementing the EITI, Guatemala aims to improve the understanding of transparency in the extractive industries and build capacity on this topic in the members of the National Commission. It also aims to communicate the objectives, benefits and progress of the implementation of EITI-Guatemala, along with the EITI Reports to the population, particularly to the communities neighbouring extractive industries’ activities.
Its latest report coves the years 2016-2017 and was published in February 2019. The reports cover corporate tax, royalties and other taxes.
