"We have been pushing them [corporate stakeholders] to publish this information, however, there are challenges in identifying who the stakeholders even are," said Wong Aung, a member of Burma's EITI civil society steering committee and director of the advocacy group Shwe Gas Movement. "I do not believe that crony companies will disclose this kind of information," he added, emphasizing that the data is only meaningful to concerned communities if it is complete, inclusive, and applies especially to those corporate entities that are most reluctant to cooperate.

MATA technical advisor and steering committee member Wong Aung said that Letpadaung was just one case of activists facing difficulties when they challenge mining and other projects across Myanmar. Many have been prevented by local authorities from holding educational forums about EITI or other resource issues, he said.
"There are so many problems, but they are happening outside of Yangon and Naypyidaw. To hold training or workshops in the remote areas, we need permission," said Wong Aung, also known for his work as director of the Shwe Gas Movement.
Activists have been jailed under laws limiting the right to protest or using trespassing laws, with the number of people in Myanmar's jails considered political prisoners swelling over the past year.
Wong Aung warned that the international community could be "ambushed" by a government that may be taking part in EITI only to clean up its image and attract more investment, while continuing to stifle efforts toward accountability.
As for transparency, the Myanmar government had shared the details of some large-scale mining projects, Wong Aung said.
