Niger's EITI report was launched amidst drawn-out uranium contract negotiations.
Niger EITI published last month its latest report, disclosing government revenue from the mining and petroleum industries in 2011. The report was launched amidst the ongoing high-profile discussions on extractives in Niger, to which the EITI Report provides some independently confirmed facts and figures.
The report shows that the extractive sector in 2011 accounted for 70.8% of exports, against 5.8% of GDP. Niger EITI has also begun to disclose revenues from artisanal mining, which constituted 0.4% of total.
