Burkina Faso has produced its first EITI report which discloses mining revenues in 2008 and 2009. The report represents a significant effort from stakeholders in the country and exceeds the minimum EITI criteria in several ways. Financial data is disaggregated by company and payment type, providing a nuanced account of revenue inflow.
Albania, Burkina Faso, Mozambique and Zambia have now become EITI Candidate countries. This was announced by the EITI Board at its meeting in Washington DC. With these four new countries, 30 countries are now implementing the EITI, further bolstering EITI as the standard for transparent management of revenues from the oil, gas and mining sectors.
