  • Commit to engage and participate productively with the PNGMSG and work collaboratively in line with PNGEITI requirements and work plan
  • Commit to take a leading role in ensuring the EITI accountability function is exercised in a responsible and constructive manner in the implementation of the initiative
  • Ensure that its members use a fact-based approach to engaging in the PNGMSG, work with GoPNG and EI to build broad public awareness of EI and related revenues to the State, and are fully engaged in monitoring the implementation of the PNGEITI work plan and the overall implementation of the initiative
