I warmly welcome you to the official website of the PNG Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (PNGEITI).
On the 1st of November 2013, the PNG Government signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish the Secretariat office of PNGEITI.
The Government of PNG (GoPNG) working in partnership with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) of PNG and mining and petroleum companies from PNG operating in the country through their authorized representatives collectively referred to as the PNG Extractive Industries Multi-Stakeholder Group (PNGMSG), has been setup to promote revenue transparency and accountability in the country’s mining and petroleum sectors.
Take this time to use our website to find out more about PNGEITI.
