European Competitiveness Council meeting

Ministers to adopt their final position on the revision proposal of the Accounting and Transparency Directives, including an obligation for extractive industries to disclose their payments to all countries in which they operate (country by country reporting). Oxfam is calling for the EU to adopt this ambitious proposal that would allow transparency in resource-rich developing countries to hold governments accountable for spending revenues from extractive companies on development.
