His Excellency M. Enkhbold commented on Mongolia’s efforts to regain investor confidence and noted, “We are working to firmly maintain the stability of policy and transparent governance in law making, while strongly addressing the issue of corruption. Mongolia is also working closely with the IMF and other international donor organizations, as well as other countries – including the USA, Russia, China, and Japan – to overcome the current economic challenges in a short period of time.”
“The United States Embassy and AmCham are partnering with the Mongolian government in other areas to successfully transform the Mongolian business environment into one that enables long-term, sustainable economic growth. To that end, I look forward to joining the annual AmCham Mongolia and Asia-Pacific Council of American Chambers of Commerce Delegation” said the Honorable Jennifer Zimdahl Galt, the U.S. Ambassador to Mongolia, during her remarks.
Chairman of AmCham Mongolia Mr. Jay Liotta said, “One of AmCham’s major initiatives in 2017 is to make sure that each one of our member companies has a success story to tell the world in 2017. In other words, Mongolia’s private sector businesses – small and large – need to succeed for Mongolia to succeed. AmCham and our members are both pleased and encouraged to hear the Chairman’s commitment to getting Mongolia back on track.”
