Papua New Guinea was admitted as an EITI Candidate country on 19 March 2014. According to the EITI Standard and transitional arrangements, the country must produce its first EITI Report within two years from becoming candidate. Validation will start within three years. The MSG is required to publish an annual activity report for 2014 by 1 July 2015.
To accomodate for the non-public sector, the Consultative Implementation & Monitoring Council (CIMC) together with civil society stakeholders formed the PNG Resource Governance Coalition and launched it in March 2015. Its primary purpose is to coordinate and facilitate the participation of civil society in implementing the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI in PNG. The coalition is currently developing its strategy so that it is aligned to the Publish What You Pay (PWYP) global Vision 20/20 strategy that seeks to strengthen PWYP’s governance standards, and engagement on advocacy initiatives on transparency and accountability on extractive industries. PWYP provides technical assistance to PNG Resource Governance Coalition (PNGRGC). The Consultative Implementation and Monitoring Council (CIMC) is the host organisation of PNGRGC.
