Mining Industry issues
In the framework of the cooperation among FIAA Committee of Mining, Oil and Gas Members and the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative in Albania, the FIAA Members have been very active in response to the implementation of the International EITI Standards in the country. Being part of the-Institutional Working Group, they have been part of the steering and co-coordinating structure for the EITI issues in Albania.
In this ambit, they met in early June with the Validation Team from EITI International Secretariat in Oslo, who visited Albania in order to monitor and review the EITI work in Albania. During the roundtable, the present businesses discussed about the better functioning of the Interagency Working Group (MSG) and the continuous improvement of Albanian Legislation in the focused sectors along with concrete results and impact of this process in all institutions, especially in mining industry areas, communities’ areas, relations with interest groups and civil society, etc.
