About Mongolia

Mongolia implemented democratic reforms in 1990, including a new constitution. The people of Mongolia chose a parliamentary democracy with a free market economy. During the Soviet time the economy of Mongolia was mainly driven by the agricultural sector. However after becoming independent it discovered its richness in resources and minerals - namely gold, copper, uranium and coal. Because the Mongolian economy is quite dependent on mining the government is actively stimulating other sectors to diversify the economy.
