Since the last Progress Report, EITI implementation has come a long way. Across the world in the 49 implementing countries over 400 people work full time on the EITI and 1200 serve on EITI national commissions.
EITI matters. Implementing countries disclose information on tax payments, licenses, contracts, production and other key elements around resource extraction. Most of these countries use the EITI to inform their extractive sector policies.
