Senate summons LEITI 

By Ethel A Tweh

The Liberian Senate has summoned the Secretariat of the Liberia Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative to appear before the Committee of a Whole of the Plenary on Thursday, October 27, to provide requisite information on the status of its work.

The senate says issues to be addressed will include compliance of various mining and logging companies, amongst others, as well as workplan.

The invite followed a communication from Grand Kru County Senator Numene T. H. Bartekwa, seeking the appearance of LEITI. 

Senator Bartekwa further notes that the forum will provide an opportunity for Senators to interact with the LEITI Secretariat, whose work, he says, is important for revenue generation and sustainability of livelihood of rural communities that depend on the extractive industry.

The invitation to LEITI comes days following call by Senate President Pro-tempore, Albert Chie to reform mining and logging activities in the country to ensure productivity, transparency and accountability.

Pro-tempt Chie, also Senator for Grand Kru County, at the opening of the final sitting of the 5th Session of the 54th Legislature called on the Liberia Revenue Authority to pay key attention to the Extractive Industry for enhanced revenue generation. The Extractive Industry includes mining, logging, commercial farming in palm, rubber, coffee and fishery.
