Myanmar EITI (Myanmar Language/English)

Members of parliament (MPs) require robust information about oil, gas and mineral revenues in order to effectively monitor government management of these resources in the public interest and to fully understand the origin of the revenues that enter (or in some cases fail to enter) the national budget. As demonstrated in countries like Liberia, when well implemented, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) can provide this kind of information to MPs, as well as to the wider public and serve as a catalyst for improved revenue collection and sector reform.
