BAGUIO CITY – Alongside with the presentation of the 4th Report to local stakeholders, the PH-EITI conducted its Roadshow 2018 which embodies its thrust of mainstreaming extractives transparency at the subnational or local level. With the theme, “Moving Beyond Transparency: Integrating Extractives Disclosure and Dialogue in Local Development” the said roadshow was held last August 29, 2018 at the Azalea Hotel, Baguio City.
It aims to highlight the continuing relevance of transparency by promoting its integration in local systems of data disclosure and dialogue and in the local development process as a whole. Thus, making important extractives information publicly available and accessible through government reporting systems, databases, websites and other open data initiatives as well as through regular fora for discussion and dialogue among stakeholders.
OIC Regional Director of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau I Engr. Carlos A. Tayag participated in the said roadshow as a panelist along with other EITI implementing agencies such as the Department of Energy, Department of Finance, Department of Budget and Management, Department of Interior and Local Government and National Commission on Indigenous People. A CSO assessment of the 4th PH-EITI Report was also conducted afterwards.
