Business Environment

Mongolia is a small economy, but one of increasing importance in the area of mining. Canada is the second largest investor in the country. However, despite improvements in macroeconomic stability, the credit environment in Mongolia remains challenging. Trade is of high importance to the country's economy. The Government of Canada has taken an important step to support Canadian business in Mongolia by opening a new Embassy in Ulan-Bator, and is in negotiating a foreign investment protection agreement driven by extensive Canadian investment in the market.
