Guinea back on track with EITI implementation

At its meeting in Paris on 1 March 2011, the EITI International Board agreed to lift the suspension of Guinea’s EITI Candidate status, following a request made by the Guinean government. Guinea has until 29 February 2012 to complete EITI Validation.

The Board had approved Guinea's request for suspending its EITI Candidate status on 19 December 2009, when the political and security situation in the country had made EITI implementation impossible.
