Liberia: EITI board lifts suspension
The board of the Extractive IndustriesTransparency Initiative (EITI) has agreed to lift Liberia’s temporary suspension with effect from 6 March. A statement said Liberia had shown improvement in implementation related to stakeholder oversight and the publication of outstanding EITI reports. Liberia was one of the first countries to implement the EITI, under former president Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, but was suspended from the initiative in September 2018 due to reporting delays and the lack of a multi-stakeholder group to oversee the process.
