  • May 2018

Emerging petroleum producing countries have been urged to carefully consider country context when forming local content policies – or risk long-term drawbacks to the development of the sector. This was one of the conclusions from a local content workshop held in Beirut over 21-23rd May which included representatives from Namibia, Guyana, Ghana and Uganda. During the workshop, delegates discussed key issues surrounding the design and implementation of local content policy with particular emphasis on better understanding the experiences of developing countries.
