G7 CONNEX Consultative Conference 9-10 March 2015 German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) Europahaus Stresemannstrasse Berlin / Germany Over recent years the extractives sector has acquired tremendous strategic importance in many resource-rich developing countries, with the promise of substantial economic benefits for the respective host nations. For these benefits to be realised, however, the sector requires proper management. Consequently, it is vital to clearly establish the rights and obligations of both the legal owner of the subsoil resources and the companies that apply for exploration and extraction rights. The G7 CONNEX Initiative was launched in June 2014 by the G7 to support mineral-rich developing countries in negotiating complex commercial contracts. Well-conceived and negotiated contracts are essential to a country s successful and inclusive development, protecting both host

2 Seite 2 von 2 country and investing company interests. Many such countries find themselves dealing with highly complex issues in an environment dominated by large multinational companies. The G7 CONNEX Initiative is designed to provide developing country partners with extended and concrete expertise for negotiating complex commercial contracts. The main objectives of the upcoming conference will be to debate various aspects of a Code of Conduct (COC) drafted by the G7 with representatives of service providers, partner countries, companies, and NGOs, and to discuss the CoC accordingly. The CoC of the G7 s CONNEX Initiative is a set of best practice examples that provides suggested duties and guiding principles of conduct for all advisors lawyers, engineers, geologists and environmental, business and social experts providing advice to governments on negotiating contracts. The discussion will comprise relevant passages of the CoC, expectations of partner countries and companies on supporting the negotiation of complex commercial contracts as well as the monitoring and evaluation of the work of external advisors. In preparation for the G7 CONNEX Consultative Conference, we have designed a survey regarding the CoC and would highly appreciate your feedback by 28 February The results of your feedback will form the basis for the discussions at the conference. Please send your comments to the survey and any questions you might have regarding the conference to the organisation team at To register for the conference, please visit The deadline for registration is 2 nd March We will be pleased to cover your travel expenses, please contact the organization team to make arrangements. We would be delighted to see you at the G7 CONNEX Consultative Conference in Berlin. Yours sincerely, Günter Nooke Personal Representative of the German Chancellor for Africa in the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)
