The COVID-19 pandemic and unprecedented precautionary measures are having a major impact and bringing significant challenges to businesses, their supply chains, employment, cash flows, and contractual obligations. In 2020, AmCham served as the primary means of communication between its members and the Government of Mongolia to ensure smooth and continued business operations. In 2021, AmCham further commits to supporting a private sector-led economic recovery and development, and to helping our members adapt to the unique challenges of doing business in and with Mongolia during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to prioritize support for the minerals sector and economic diversification in other sectors, such as the digital economy, e-commerce, and agriculture, and to promote U.S.-Mongolia bilateral trade and investment, as well as regional connectivity. In 2021, we will place an even stronger focus on promoting the acquisition and use of goods, works, and services from the United States.
