Good To Know

Over the past three decades, Mongolia's transition to a democracy has resulted in a threefold increase in its GDP per capita, accompanied by notable achievements in poverty reduction over the last ten years.

The abundant agricultural, livestock, and mineral resources, coupled with a well-educated population, position Mongolia optimistically for long-term development through the implementation of structural reforms.

The growth of the Mongolian economy is predominantly fueled by the ongoing recovery in mining production and services. This momentum is further supported by the easing of border restrictions, the commencement of the Oyu Tolgoi underground mining phase, resurgence in household consumption, and substantial public investments.

Projections indicate that Mongolia's economy is poised to grow by 5.8% in 2023 and 6.2% in 2024, driven by the robust expansion of the mining sector, the recovery of private consumption, and fiscal expansion.
