Ministry of Natural Resources receives U.S. Support for Guyana’s EITI Candidacy

The Ministry of Natural Resources gratefully acknowledges assistance from the Carter Center through a grant from the U.S. Embassy to support Guyana’s bid to join the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). EITI is an international standard for the good governance of revenues derived from oil, gas, mining and other natural resources.  The U.S. support has so far helped to bring together Guyana’s EITI Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) comprising members of the government, civil society, and extractive industry companies.  The MSG has been meeting since February to develop Guyana’s EITI candidacy application to the Oslo, Norway-based international body.  The Center also has provided technical assistance to the EITI Secretariat, which is the operational arm of the MSG.  The Ministry of Natural Resources encourages the public and other stakeholders to take part in a series of public outreach events on EITI during the month of July 2017 in Corriverton (July 8th), Bartica (July 12th), Linden (July 15th), Charity (July 17th), and Georgetown (July 20th).  The events are made possible through the U.S.-supported program.
