MONROVIA, LIBERIA-President George Manneh Weah has departed the Country today Tuesday, October 30, 2018, for Dakar, Senegal to attend the Africa Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) Conference.

The conference which focuses on Beneficial Ownership Transparency is being facilitated by the Government of Senegal and it runs up to Friday, November 2, 2018.

The Conference is intended to discuss and find answers to burning issues arising from the use of Africa’s lucrative extractive industries.

It includes the role of ownership transparency in preventing tax evasion, mitigating illicit financial flows and raising revenues.

The conference will also discuss how governments, companies and civil society can work together towards beneficial ownership disclosure in the extractive sector to help mobilize domestic resources.

While the President is away, the Minister of State for Presidential Affairs and Chief of Office Staff, Nathaniel McGill will chair the Cabinet in close consultation with the Vice President and via telephone contact with the President.
