Economic mission to Mongolia

Do you operate in the renewable energy and infrastructure sector? Join us on our trade mission to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, from 18 to 23 May and discover a wide array of funding sources for projects of this nature.

Did you know that the Mongolian economy has experienced strong growth in recent years? With its relatively stable political climate, Mongolia also benefits from attractive funding from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), through its Country Partnership Strategy (pdf 276 ko).

Focus on funding sources

Currently, Mongolia is aiming to:

  • overcome infrastructural shortcomings
  • promote renewable energies
  • foster regional economic integration
  • extend access to basic urban services and support agribusiness.

Given these favourable conditions, we are committed to helping you successfully plan for the future! That’s why we are inviting you to spend 4 days meeting local businesses on the ground, as well as various funding bodies.
