Market Information

With mining representing roughly 80% of Mongolia’s exports, the government is keen to grow other key sectors that can boost their trading competitiveness to reduce their reliance on minerals.

These key sectors include renewable energy, where the government aim to one day become an electricity exporting country. Textiles where global demand for cashmere is showing strong growth. Food processing, where the inability to meet international standards with regards to sanitary and quality requirements restricts their ability to export overseas and tourism where they are keen to implement the necessary infrastructure to attract up to 1 million visitors a year from the 400,000 it currently attracts.
