The Fu­ture of Mon­go­lia’s Re­sources

“There have been many in­jured and even killed in th­ese fights,” Damd­in­rage­haa says. “Some­times the mines even pay cor­rupt po­lice­men to get in­volved and ar­rest the ninjas. Un­for­tu­nately, there is very lit­tle we can do about it since large cor­po­ra­tions pay big sums to cor­rupt politi­cians. They never bother to touch the gold, but they are the ones who profit most from it,” he de­nounces. “If we want to make Mon­go­lia a stronger na­tion, we def­i­nitely need to make sure that our vast min­eral re­sources are well man­aged and used to pre­pare fu­ture gen­er­a­tions for the chal­lenges of a glob­alised world. Un­for­tu­nately, we are not there yet.” ag
