Today, 30 March, Mozambique launched its 2009 EITI Report in Quilemane in Zambezia Province, disclosing payments made to the government from companies extracting natural resources. The government received a total of just under US$40 million from their extractives sector in 2009: US$15m from mining and US$25m from hydrocarbons.
The EITI Board today (26 October) declared Mozambique 'Compliant' with the EITI Standard. There are now 16 countries that are 'EITI Compliant'. EITI compliance means that the country has an effective process for annual disclosure and reconciliation of all revenues from its extractive sector.
