Therefore, in order to reduce traffic congestion, road repair and maintenance, building highways, public transport fleet renovation, and increasing access to schools and kindergartens are being carried out according to the plan. Particular attention to improving the quality of life of the population of Ulaanbaatar, providing them with the opportunity to live in a healthy and safe environment, and achieving unified standards are being paid. The capital city intends to implement Singapore's experience and housing policy in the ger area redevelopment, and bring out the correct planning of mortgage loans and capital sources. Ulaanbaatar will cooperate with Singapore in bringing urban planning to one standard.

Since the implementation of the ger area redevelopment started, as of 2021, apartments for 11,755 households have been put into use in 19 locations in the ger area, and more than 5,000 chimneys in the ger area have been removed. It is characterized by the fact that schools, kindergartens, and medical buildings are built and put into use in accordance with the standards within the ger area redevelopment.
