ACMS Speaker Series
Who Wins From Mining in Mongolia 
Speaker: Paul Mills

5:30 PM, Tuesday September 5th, 2017, American Corner, Ulaanbaatar public library

He will be talking about who wins and who loses from mining in Mongolia. Clearly mining is a very important industry in Mongolia, but how much is it really contributing to addressing some of Mongolia’s often self-evident social problems? How can Mongolia get best returns from its mines? How can Mongolia best manage the returns from its mines, because even the best mines close? And how effective will mine reclamation efforts prove in the long run? These questions are relevant to Mongolia today and into the future.
