Ambassador Pam Slutz, Chairman of the NAMBC, has announced that Dr. S. Oyun, Minister of the Environment, and UB Mayor/Govern E. Bat-Uul will be featured speakers at the NAMBC's 16th Annual Investors Conference, September 24-26, 2013, at the Kempinski Khan Palace Hotel.

Bat-Uul will kick off the segment on "Urbanization in Mongolia and the Transformation of Ulaanbaatar." Other conference panels will address "The Future of Mining in Mongolia" and "Investment and the Mongolian Economy."

The Investors Conference will also celebrate the 40th anniversary of Mongolia-Canada diplomatic relations this year. Full simultaneous interpretation will be provided. This conference is the oldest, longest-running international investors forum in or about Mongolia, held annually in UB since 1998, and one of the very few organized by an independent non-profit NGO. Non-members from any country are welcome. Please see the links below for reserving hotel rooms at the discounted group rate and a registration form.

Dr. S. Oyun, the first Mongolian to earn a PhD from Cambridge University (UK), is Minister of Environment and Green Development and chairman of the Civic Will Green Party. She has been a Member of Parliament continuously since 1998, reelected in 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012. She is also a former Minister of Foreign Affairs and is the current head of the Zorig Foundation. In 2003, Dr. Oyun held an Eisenhower Fellowship (US) and in 2006, was named as a rising Young Global Leader (YGL) by the Davos World Economic Forum (WEF).

Bat-Uul was elected Mayor of Ulaanbaatar and Governor of the Capital on August 7, 2012 by the City Council. An astrophysicist by profession, Bat-Uul was one of the leaders of Mongolia's 1990 democratic revolution. He served as chairman of the Democratic Party from 1990 to 1992, and as the party's general secretary from 1992 to 1996. He was elected to the State Great Khural in 1996, 2004 and 2008. Ulaanbaatar is home to over half the nation’s population where Mayor Bat-Uul has laid out a vision for ambitious infrastructure projects and reforms in governance that are transforming the capital city and offer many opportunities for investors.

Our 16th Annual Investors Conference convenes in Ulaanbaatar just a few days before the State Great Khural (parliament) opens its fall session. Parliament's crowded agenda – and the agenda for our conference – includes a new minerals law, a revised investment law and other legislative and policy developments affecting both foreign and domestic investors in all sectors, including mining. Deadline for all registrations is September 6 after which a late fee is assessed.
