Equatorial Guinea: New EITI membership bid
Equatorial Guinea is seeking readmission to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) as part of efforts to attract more investors to its key oil and gas sector. The government, which plans to launch a licensing round in April, sent a delegation to Oslo for a meeting on 15 February with representatives of the EITI Secretariat, including executive director Mark Robinson. The delegation presented a letter of intent from the EG EITI National Commission to join the EITI.
