It is with regret that we have received the decision from the Government of Azerbaijan announcing that they are withdrawing from the EITI.
The EITI Chair, Fredrik Reinfeldt, former Prime Minister of Sweden, commented:
he International Secretariat is visiting the country to carry out the first stage (Initial data collection and stakeholder consultation) of Validation.
To find out more about Azerbaijan (includes information on the country manager), visit the country page.
Second Validation concludes meaningful progress, but more is needed.
