Mongolia 2007

Yearbook 2007

Mongolia. According to CountryAAH, Ulaanbaatar is the capital city of Mongolia. Six years after Canadian mining company Ivanhoe Mines found large copper and gold deposits at Oyu Tolgoi in the Gobi Desert, the Mongolian government signed an agreement with the company to open a mine there. Under the agreement, the state must own 34 percent of the mine. However, the ratification of the agreement necessary for it to enter into force was postponed due to doubts in Parliament as to whether the contract is sufficiently favorable to Mongolia. After many decades of Soviet exploitation of the country’s natural resources and a painful transition to market economy, there is widespread skepticism in the Mongolian society towards foreign economic interests.
