Mongolia’s Foreign Policy Towards Asia
07 Jun 2019

His Excellency Damdin Tsogtbaatar, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Mongolia, gave an RSIS Distinguished Public Lecture on 7 June 2019.

Over the past 20 years, Mongolia has transformed into a vibrant multiparty democracy with a booming economy. It has advanced from an aid recipient to an active player in the international arena due to its progressive cooperation with the international community and the role of the UN and other multilateral architectures. Mongolia is at the threshold of a major transformation driven by the exploitation of its vast mineral resources, including mining which makes up 20 percent of the GDP today; twice that of a decade ago. Today, Mongolia is a transit hub for 1.5 billion people in China and Russia. Using the geographical advantage, Mongolia is planning to become the shortest transit link that connects Asia and Europe.
