 The number of oil, gas and mineral resource-rich countries has steadily increased over the past 25 years, particularly in low- to middle-income countries. It is estimated that by 2030 half of the global population living on less than $2 a day will reside in countries with extractives-driven economies. Optimizing revenues captured from extractive resources is therefore of paramount importance and a potentially major vehicle for poverty reduction and inclusive growth.


The mining sector has been expanding at a time when the multinational enterprises involved have been structuring their operations in ways that result in a spread of their functions, assets and risks across multiple related entities located in different jurisdictions. This trend, which is especially prominent in Africa and in countries with similar economic circumstances, results in value-adding activities moving away from the countries hosting the mining operations. As a consequence, the volume of goods and services provided through cross-border transactions between related entities expands, and the price charged for them demands more attention and proper assessment for tax calculation.


Join the World Bank’s Energy and Extractive Industries Global Practice in a panel discussion that will:

  •  identify typical mining functions and activities and their associated rewards and risks;
  •  investigate key commodities mined in Africa, profiling their transfer pricing risks;
  •  discuss selected other extractives tax base erosion mechanisms.
