sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

There's a right way to buy from artisanal miners. It's a CRAFT. The Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) and RESOLVE share this Code of Risk-mitigation for ASM engaging in Formal Trade.

Despite pushback from industry, the sector regulator insists that Rwanda's new mining law is business-friendly and brings stability to the sector. Read more in Stephen Nuwagira's interview with Francis Gatare, the Mines, Petroleum & Gas Board CEO.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, is betting on popular tool for making its investor-thirsty economy business-friendly: tax incentives. But is it worth taking money away from essential services? Is the tax incentive regime transparent? Does it even make a difference in an investor's decision to do business in the country? Mukasiri Sibanda explores.

These and more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions on GOXI.
