Business Environment

Mongolia is a small economy, but one of increasing importance in the areas of mining, infrastructure and agriculture. Canada is one of the largest investors in the country, mainly in the mining sector. The credit environment in Mongolia remains challenging and the currently low commodity prices might undermine the country's macroeconomic indicators performance going forward. Trade is of high importance to the country's economy, particularly with China.
