Mongolian Parliament Powers Government to Sign Oyu Tolgoi Deal

The UB Post's July 17 front page story:

The State Great Hural (Parliament) of Mongolia approved a resolution that gives the Government the power to sign the Oyu Tolgoi (OT) draft agreement.
The decision was made during Parliament’s general debate session on Thursday afternoon. It came shortly after the Standing Committee on Budgets unanimously disagreed with giving tax holidays to Ivanhoe Mines and Rio Tinto – the developers of the OT Project.
The majority of parliamentary members at the session at a vote of 39 to 6 decided that the tax waive issue should be considered a significant part of the deal. The Parliament’s Standing Committees for Economics and Budgetary Affairs reconvened in the afternoon.
Along with the draft investment agreement on OT, there are some draft amendments to certain laws, including on taxation, minerals, and road infrastructures, that needed to be reviewed.
Some of the members, represented by both the DP and MPRP parties opposed the OT investment agreement, citing the change of a different investor being selected after the Rio Tinto contract with Ivanhoe expires in October.
Chinese detentions of the Australian company’s senior mining executives was discussed at the debate as Mongolian lawmakers heralded it as a “big signal”.
Whether China or Rio Tinto would be involved in the future of OT was a question some Mongolian parliamentarians expressed during the debate session.
Minister of Minerals and Energy D.Zorigt said that Rio Tinto has little possibility to keep investing in Oyu Tolgoi project if its agreement is delayed again or terms of the agreement are changed.
“I cannot say who would be sitting behind the negotiation table,” he said. “Would Rio Tinto remain or Ivanhoe Mines comes up on its own?”

The UB Post Participates Euromoney's Mongolia-Asia Investment Forum 2009 as Media Partner

The UB Post, Mongolia's independent English weekly newspaper, was invited today By Euromoney Conferences to make media partnership for the Mongolia-Asia Investment Forum, which will be held on March 31, 2009 at The Conrad Hotel in Hong Kong.

The UB Post has been sponsoring Euromoney Conferences' Mongolia forums since 2006. The events attracted high level government delegations, as well as several hundreds of investors from more than 50 countries worldwide.

Mongolia is a country which has come a long way turning around its economy in a short space of time, generating an average of 6-8 per cent growth of GDP over the past five years. Recent World Bank reports have announced Mongolia as one of the fastest growing and most stable economies in current turbulent times.

The Euromoney Mongolia-Asia Investment Forum will bring together top level government officials, world class economists, some of the biggest investors investing in Mongolia and multilateral companies as speakers to help you identify where the best investment opportunities are in Mongolia and how best to access these opportunities.

Some of the topics the conference will discuss include:

• Mongolia’s economic outlook in the face of a global economic turmoil
• Work in progress: political, economical and legal reforms: what changes need to be made?
• Financing Mongolia’s infrastructure needs
• Developments and reforms in the mining sector

So far, Khan Bank, Trade and Development Bank are participating as lead sponsors, and Newscom Group as co-lead sponsor. Conrad Hong Kong Hotel is located in Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Hong Kong.
