Soros Says Oil Firms Should Disclose Payments, La Tribune Says

George Soros urged the European Union to adopt rules that would require oil and mining companies to disclose payments made to governments, La Tribune reported.

Soros, in an interview with the French business daily, said transparency on the payments is essential to make sure the revenue from natural resources benefits a country’s population and not just its leaders. Existing international measures seeking voluntary disclosure are too weak, he told the paper.
