Beneficial Ownership: Tackling Hidden Company Ownership Through Myanmar's EITI Process

This paper focuses on a new and ground-breaking provision of EITI: a requirement for the identities of the real owners – the ‘beneficial owners’ – of extractive industry companies to be made public. It makes recommendations about the information which needs to be collected and disclosed to make the most of EITI standards on beneficial ownership, and suggests steps to carry out this process successfully in Myanmar.
