The successful implementation of EITI will be through close inter-agency collaboration and collective stakeholder contribution.

The MSG comprises 26 members representing the three constituencies of government, oil and mining companies and civil society. Its role is to oversee EITI implementation in Uganda so as to improve the governance of the extractive sector through enhanced transparency and accountability. Uganda joins the EITI
