São Tomé and Príncipe

The national authorities of São Tomé and Príncipe publicly committed to the FiTI in December 2018. However, this commitment did not endure the change in political leadership of the country in 2019.

The FiTI restarted its collaboration with stakeholders in São Tomé and Príncipe (government, business, civil society) in November 2020. The objective is to raise awareness about the importance of transparency for the country’s marine fisheries sector and to obtain a robust commitment from the government of São Tomé and Príncipe to implement the FiTI.
