ParlAmericas’ “Parliaments and Extractive Industries: How to Improve Oversight and Increase Collaboration” Workshop Concludes
ParlAmericas’ Parliaments and Extractive Industries: How to Improve Oversight and Increase Collaboration workshop in Bogota, Colombia, concluded yesterday after two days of discussions, panel sessions, and smaller working groups.
Parliamentarians were very positive about the exchanges they had had over the course of the meeting. They made a number of recommendations ranging from parliaments must play a more active role in ensuring transparency at all levels of the extractive industry, to parliaments should seek to strengthen regional and sub-regional integration in order to promote alternative models of economic development.
There was general agreement that the event was enriched through the collaboration of Revenue Watch Institute and the experts from organizations such as the World Bank and CEPAL.
