Mongolia has left three decades of so called “transitioneconomy”. During the period, the economic environment has faced lots of challenges which allowed us to learn and develop. As a result, private enterprises were established and started creating value in the economy. But now, the learning period is over, and it’s the time to strengthen the power of economic competitiveness at a global level.
