Then-Foreign Minister Zandanshatar Gombojav was identified as a “traitor”. He was blamed for concluding a secret negotiation to bury uranium wastes in Mongolia with the Americans and Japanese and claimed to have received generous bribe for this. Actually, no such thing has ever happened. No such explicit and secret negotiation were conducted anywhere. This was a deliberate policy not to have uranium exploration in Mongolia and agitate Mongolians enough to chase foreign investors through rumors and slanders. The open financier was a Japanese citizen with Korean ethnicity. It is possible that Russians may have commissioned all this. This attempt to chase out foreign investors from Mongolia was overwhelming and achieved huge and unexpected success. Member of the Party and comrade Zandanshatar Gombojav is a very sensitive person who made his career from an economist of a state-run-collective farm to the Foreign Minister of Mongolia. He thinks that preventing foreign occupation in the motherland is his duty and named it the Foreign Policy of Mongolia. He began acting very rough towards American and Japanese officials, completely avoiding them.

If met by an accident, he acts as if he is barking at them. He widely promotes his behavior domestically. He put on a face of a patriot and initiated a law to stop and curb foreign investment in order to prove he had nothing to do with the uranium when the election was nearing. Who would not partner with him in this noble cause? There is another important patriot named Byambatsogt Sandag. Also Enkhbold Nambar, who led Mongolia’s foreign relations before Zandanshatar Gombojav. They all got together to develop a serious law to restrict foreign investment in the minerals sector and allow parliament to review each investment case and provide special permit. Inviting Batbayar Nyamjav, who is reportedly a specialist in such adventures, also had a purpose. This idiot is capable of doing anything. The draft law was reviewed and became more strict. Its scope covered telecommunication, banking and financialsectors. They locked the door of Mongolia and sealed it. Now, let us all enjoy behind that locked door for eternity. It did not take long for the results to emerge. Those who invested in Mongolia began to run away quickly. Those who planned to invest realized that they will be robbed and escaped too. Mongolia’s export plunged 60 percent within a short time and the economy began to deteriorate.

Mongolia was announced as a country with the most unreliable investment environment. According to experts, Mongolia was forecasted to go bankrupt in 2013. It is possible as 90 percent of its revenue sources are locked and sealed off. This was done by the law. Large companies, which already invested, have froze their assets. Western companies like “Rio Tinto” and “Centerra Gold” and “South Gobi“ froze all their activities fearing further risks. Activities of domestic producers weakened and many were shut down. Cash flow was disrupted in the country. Construction, communication and other business sectors began to fall on their knees regardless of their size. I even heard that snuff tobacco box sellers complained about low price of snuff boxes because of coal. Thisis not the first or last example of how unaccountability hurts and damages national economy and even deteriorates further. Somebody initiated a madness to distribute cash before 2004 election and he was even proud of this. Further on, this became like a socialist competition. Cash incentive was initially started with a naive name ”incentive for children”, then it covered marriage and biological phenomenon of giving birth and then ended up with cash distribution for old people and public. Several billions of USD were spent on cash incentive.If it was used for infrastructure, education and economic reform, Mongolia would have been a different country today. Everybody says let us not depend on mining, let us develop other economic sectors. Money is the foremost requirement to do that. How are we supposed to develop other sectors when the mining sector is being blocked at its peak, draining all the revenues down the sink and publicly partying with what little remains.

• Rumors and slanders about burying uranium wastes were a deliberate policy on chasing foreign investors.

• Some patriots' law that covered telecommunication, banking and financial sectors closed the door of foreign investment for Mongolians.

• When Mongolian economy was saturated with cash and was developing to a new height, 68 percent windfall tax law was approved.

When Mongolian economy was saturated with cash and was developing to a new height, 68 percent windfall tax law was approved. It brought almost no revenue; however, it became a giant measure to scare away foreign investors. The outcome of this law emerged quickly and in 2007, the number of foreign invested companies dropped by 20.9 percent. Then there was the 2008 crisis. Also, production and sales of some commodities like gold criminalized. Initiator of this law is not a sane person. That insane person planned to raise USD 1.5 billion government bond with a high interest rate without any clear plan, creating a long queue outside his office asifit is his own. He spoke about supporting his former party of Mongolian National Progressive Party and reviving the faction, as well as cutting economic ties with Seoul, saying Koreans are abusing our women. It is reported that he said the bond was sold successfully because he held a fire worshipping ceremony and called for the public to organize fire worshipping ceremonies. He even said foreigners do not know how to make economic estimation and said they should learn from his daughter. He said he found this great idea while surfing yahoo search and said he will test it in Mongolia.

This is not a funny conversation of a psychiatric hospital. It was not even a joke. This was a serious talk held in Mongolia’s legislative body, a place where state policy is determined and wealth is distributed! All this crazy actions ranging from Law on Strategically Untouchable Deposits, which damaged the whole economy, to Law on Banning Immorality and Licentious Activities, Law Against Alcoholism and Smoking, Law on Pressuring Rich and Taxing their Savings, Law on Taking Care of Old and Children and Law on Cash Distribution and Awarding Marriages in order to support population growth were originated from his asylum. Initially, these acts looked very fair and patriotic. But in reality, these were the nonsenses that attacked emerging democratic system and pushed the public to commit illegal actions and caused enmity among social classes. Responses to these nonsenses were also very simple. Is it right to drink vodka; why can we not love our motherland; justice should be protected; are you going to turn your daughter into a prostitute etc. Some keen-eyed people see that the percentage of insane people in the Parliament rises after every election. That is in terms of medical science. Those stupid, rude and ignorant people who likes to become lawmakers repeatedly under the ”justice” mask are filling up the top legislative body. Initially, there were only one or two such people and then, they multiplied and became a group.

Maybe, the “Egiin river power station’s 13” were the first of such group. The next was the group of people who persuaded Oyun Sanjaasuren, who was abroad for many years and did not know much about domestic situation, to form a separate political party by saying “we saw how the democratic party members killed your brother with our own eyes” and played their politics. Groups after that had a purpose of competing with corruption,stealing for their own benefits rather than for political purposes. It is common to use naive idiots who have mental problems or want to be loved by the public in such manners. About dozen companies who faced a huge loss by investing in mining deposits figured out a way to get compensation from the State. They drafted a law on banning exploitation of earth along river basins and gave it to an idiot of a lawmaker. According to this law, the state will be responsible for the losses. Hundreds of licenses were suspended. Even companies from Gobi desert became eligible to be included in this on their own request under the pretext that there could be water and spring under the Gobi soil. Compensations for these companies reached USD 8 billion, which exceeds the GDP at the time. That so-called patriot who submitted this law, is the one who cut down and exported trees from Tuj pine forest to the People’s Republic of China. Do you remember those people who show up every night on TV talk show program “never ending conversation”?

They repeatedly talked about isolating this country from the rest of the world and harming the economy and not accumulating the revenue and distributing it for several years sounded like sophisticated plan of countries that are hostile to Mongolia. At that time, they were just hoping to become a mere lawmaker. However, after the election, they all got promoted to administrators of the State Budget. Promise is a promise. The man who became the mining minister immediately announced that foreigners will be chased out from Mongolia in order to realize his pledge and this was immediately translated into 23 languages of the world. It set a new record for the Mongolian literature. The book “Mongolian secret history” being translated into 13 languages is now an old record. Mongolian Parliament pays too much attention to minor issues from time to time; for instance the Parliament held serious discussions over the President Ochirbat Punsalmaa’s choice of word “luxurious” during a party, and MP Ganbold eating a head of sheep in front of foreigners during one reception. However, they were silent when mental asylum patients repeatedly defiled the economy of Mongolia. Parliament is a place where they can do anything they want. In his “Divine Comedy”, Dante wrote “the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in time of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality. Many lawmakers who are sane, have good education, and considered just by the public, sits idly when laws and regulations that could harm the country is being passed by idiots although they have sworn duty before the public. If what Dante said was true, these sinners will go to the cruelest places from the three chambers of the hell.

MCE raises commission on raw wool to enhance quality

​Manufacturers criticize quality does not come at premium price​

 0 сэтгэгдэл


Mongolian Commodity Exchange (MCE) raises commission on wool in order to support wool processors and knitters. The decision was announced yesterday during a press conference, in which the MCE said they respect the request submitted by wool processors, such as Erdenet Carpet LLC, Ulaanbaatar Carpet JSC, Mogol Noos LLC and Sor Cashmere LLC. Accordingly, commission on wool is now MNT 9.3 per kg. The above-mentioned companies reportedly submitted their request for support to the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry in June 2018. After reviewing the request, the ministry has decided to increase commission on washed wool from 0.32 percent to 15 percent and reduce premium on sheared wool to 0.2 percent. National manufacturers highlighted, “The decision is encouraging wool shearing, manufacturing of final products, and thus, helping export production.” Presently, wool price fluctuates between MNT 3,200 and 4,000 per kg.

MCE officials remarked that the increase in premium on wool is not an attempt to interfere with the market price of wool and is aimed at preventing price bubble and maintaining sustainability. According to the MCE, the ideal price for wool is MNT 3,000 per kg. By all accounts, this will reduce manufacturing cost of final products and ease price pressure for consumers. Manufacturers criticized that quality does not come at a premium price. Therefore, they highlighted that herders need to encourage national production by improving the quality of raw materials and get awarded MNT 1,000 per kg. According to statistics, Mongolia domestically supplies 40 percent of local demand and 70 percent of camel hair fabric. Last year, national producers processed 67 percent of the wool and 90 percent of the camel hair sales for export production. According to the related ministry, Mongolia has a potential to annually processes over 35,000 tons of wool. National companies currently process about 27,000 tons of wool annually. Additionally, wool processing representatives highlighted that Mongolia is currently processing fine wool, producing cloths and market-ready products with it.
