The Ministry of Culture and the “Small and Medium Enterprises and Services Support Center” capital city-owned enterprise will cooperate with the selected works and handcrafters to develop their products for 1-3 years to bring them to the international market.
During the selection of the masterpieces, the Chairman of the Citizens’ Representative Khural of Ulaanbaatar, J. Batbayasgalan, addressed the handcrafters, “You are the people who are creating the traditional cultural heritage of your nation with your skills and intelligence to spread your historical culture. The Government of Mongolia is implementing a policy to make a transition from importer to exporter. This exhibition is an important event that serves as a bridge between small and medium-sized enterprises and handcrafters to the international market. During the pandemic, the hardest test and hit fell on the small and medium producers and entrepreneurs. In this sense, we believe it is a major action to revive the economy.”
Small and medium enterprises and services are essential sectors of the economy, accounting for more than 70% of Mongolia’s labor market, 18.3% of GDP, and 2.4% of total export income.
