The public discussion on the sharing of mining rents between States and investors is recurrent and reappears with each reversal in world prices. Understanding the stakes of the sector and mastering the tools for balanced negotiation between government and companies is essential.
The objective of this training is to provide participants with the capacity to master the stakes of the sector, to have knowledge of the fiscal instruments used in resource-rich countries to tax industrial mining companies, and to build a quantitative analysis model adapted to the understanding of the sharing of mining rent between States and investors.
The training is intended for CEMAC Commission’s officials and Member State administrations dealing with taxation of extractive industries. 14 auditors participated in the training.
Auditors who have completed and validated the training will be awarded the "Hautes Etudes en Développement Durable" certificate, with a special mention for "Taxation des industries extractives" at the end of the course.
