World Economic Forum Strategic Dialogue on the Future of Mongolia
Mongolia is currently one of the world’s fastest growing economies, with GDP growth for 2013 forecasted to be between 14-16%. The country is benefiting from a booming mining industry, which is still far from realizing its full potential, and the government has strong ambitions to use this wealth to improve infrastructure and foster growth across different sectors, ultimately improving the lives of its people.
Given these positive foundations, Mongolia is at a crucial turning point. Its future prosperity is affected by highly uncertain drivers of change, from the reliability of foreign investments to fluctuating commodity prices and the future of geopolitical relations with neighbouring Russia and China.
The World Economic Forum Strategic Dialogue on the Future of Mongolia is an unparalleled opportunity to bring together the Mongolian government and other leading domestic and international stakeholders to explore economic pathways. The meeting forms an essential part of the World Economic Forum’s project Scenarios for Mongolia, the outcomes of which will be presented at the Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters, January 2014.
