This was his first time here, but not the first visit by an EBRD President.  This came when Mr. Jean Limier visited Mongolia in 2006, to open the bank’s representative office in Ulaanbaatar.

  • Interview with Mr. Philip ter Woort, Head of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Ulaanbaatar Resident Office, by N.Ariuntuya, MMJ journalist

    I’m pleased to interview you during the remarkable period of development in Mongolia. As a country director of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in Mongolia, what would be your opinion about current social and economic situation of Mongolia? 

    This is indeed a remarkable and even historic time for Mongolia. I travel often between Europe and Mongolia and I can therefore compare the prevailing moods in both Europe and Mongolia. Mongolia’s economic prospects are much better than faced by most European countries and the public mood in Europe is somewhat dim, quite the opposite of the optimism in Mongolia. It feels at present good every time I return to Mongolia to share in the positive atmosphere where Mongolians themselves feel that, finally, “their time has come” which adds to the optimism in the air.

  • N. Ariuntuya talks to Canada’s Ambassador to Mongolia Gregory Goldhawk about bilateral relations and the direction he sees them taking.

    Mr. Ambassador, how did you come here?
    I joined the foreign relations service of Canada in 1981, and have served in many countries in almost in all continents.  I have worked mostly in trade relations and was assigned to the USA for a long period of time. Immediately before coming to Mongolia, I was posted in Thailand.
    I am here with my wife and a daughter who is 9 years old and has made many friends in her new school. My wife is actively interested in Mongolian arts. We are happy here and have no complaints at all, even though we came from plus 30-degree country to a minus 30-degree one.

  • Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade G.Zandanshatar talks about the economic foreign relations program aimed at attracting and facilitating foreign participation in the economic development of Mongolia.

    What is the objective of the economic foreign relations program?
    It is quite wide. On the one hand, the program seeks to provide both the impetus and the implements to our diplomatic missions to give a prime place to economic issues in their work. On the other, foreign channels will now be more extensively utilized to help in our economic development.  It will also be instrumental in establishing stronger economic relations with countries with which our political ties are right now more significant.
