Reversal of Fortune: Thailand's Oil and Gas Sector

This is one in a series of case studies that illustrates the principles of the Natural Resource Charter.

Thailand’s experience provides an example of why public engagement and transparency by all major stakeholders are needed in the extractive sector. The prospect of greater transparency could see a reversal in the country’s current trajectory of slower economic growth and also dispel myths that fuel public mistrust of the sector. This case study shows how disseminating information on the oil and gas sector through the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) could potentially benefit not only citizens and government, but companies, as well.
