Where state participation in the extractive industries gives rise to material revenue payments, implementing countries must include disclosures from state-owned enterprises on their quasi-fiscal expenditures.

Quasi-fiscal expenditures include arrangements whereby SOE(s) undertake public social expenditure such as payments for social services, public infrastructure, fuel subsidies and national debt servicing, etc. outside of the national budgetary process.

Guyana just started production of oil. The first revenues from Guyana's oil have already flowed into government coffers, including oil royalties and revenues received from the sale of profit oil. In this context, the EITI International Secretariat is pleased to hold a webinar on commodity trading transparency in Guyana. It will include a discussion on Guyana's oil sector to-date, the EITI Standard and its work on commodity trading transparency and give the opportunity for questions from participants.

As you may know, the EITI Standard requires implementing countries to disclose information on the financial relationship between the government and the state-owned enterprise, where state participation in the extractive industries gives rise to material revenue payments. Additionally, the reporting process must comprehensively address the role of SOEs.

In preparation for the webinar, kindly read Guidance on SOEs as well as Guidance note 18 for more information on this topic.
