Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI)

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is a global Standard to promote open and accountable management of natural resources in its member countries. Armenia has started the process of accession to the EITI in July 2015. Countries implementing the EITI must disclose information on tax payments, licences, contracts, production and other key elements around resource extraction. Civil society’s substantive participation is an important part of a country’s ability to become an EITI member.
