European Parliament plenary session

The European Parliament will vote in plenary on a European anti-corruption legislation (EU Transparency and Accountability Directive), which would require oil, gas and mining companies as well as the logging industry to report what they pay to governments in countries where they do business. Oxfam urges Europe to follow the US lead in resisting the lobbying efforts of powerful extractive companies and enforcing a law that champions the rights of developing countries to benefit from their natural resource wealth.
