2019 EITI Global Conference

Paris, France 18-19 June 2023

Open data, build trust

Hosted by the Government of France on 18-19 June 2019 in Paris, the 8th EITI Global Conference gathered more than 1000 stakeholders from around the globe to take stock of progress and priorities in extractives transparency.

Centered around the theme "Open Data, Build Trust", the EITI Global Conference addressed how extractives governance can be harnessed for inclusive development. The programme featured a wide variety of sessions and speakers to reflect the diverse, multi-stakeholder interests in the sector, with a particular focus around mainstreaming extractives data into government and company systems so as to facilitate openness, improve decision-making and enhance trust.
