On 28th January 2019, Cabinet approved Uganda to join the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI). The decision to join EITI was informed by the appreciation of the values that EITI promotes with regard to disclosure of information about the whole extractives’ governance chain from allocation and ownership of licenses; to the contractual, legal and fiscal terms; the production and export; the payments companies make to Government and the expenditures of revenues by Government.
