In his speech, Mr. Zandanshatar said, “The pandemic is creating price hikes that have not occurred in the last 40 years. Mongolia’s economy grew by 1.9 percent in the first half of 2022, which is lower than that of a year before the pandemic. Businesses’ earnings and people's incomes are decreasing. If this situation continues, there will be a real risk that livelihoods will become worse and prices will rise much more. Our country is obliged to pay a debt of USD 5.7 billion next year, which poses another risk. In order to fulfill agenda in the election platform, it is necessary to work more concentrated in this session”.
