Video interviews | Building Transparency into African Oil, Gas and Mining

In the wake of our panel debate on Building Transparency into African Oil, Gas and Mining, we asked our speakers to answer a few questions about the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI).

The panel debate, moderated by Gilles Carbonnier, took place shortly after a board meeting of the EITI in Berne and saw the participation of:

  • Bady Baldé, Regional Director for Central Africa and Madagascar, EITI;
  • Andrew Gowers, Global Head of Corporate Affairs, Trafigura
  • Ali Idrissa, National Coordinator for Niger, Réseau des organisations pour la transparence et l’analyse budgétaire (ROTAB)
  • Florent Michel Okoko, Advisor to the Minister of Economy & Finance, Congo

Bady Baldé explained what are the EITI’s main achievements and what remains to be done.


Andrew Gowes told us why Trafigura, one of the world’s leading commodity trading firms, decided to be the first private company in the sector to join the EITI.


Ali Idrissa highlighted the contribution of the EITI from a civil society perspective, but also pointed out many issues that still need to be solved (video in French).


Michel Florent Okoko listed the results achieved by the EITI from a state-representative point of view (video in French).
