  • Government regulation and its involement 

Moderator Mr. Amartuvshin.O asks what makes a good, strong and capable government. 

City Mayor E.Bat-Uul: "A good government can be compared to supermarket with excellent service. Supermarket must provide the necessary commodity to attract customers. In recent years, public position is considered as business. Therefore it attracts lots of young generations.

One must never confuse government with business. In order to distinguish this, solid policy reform needs to happen. Government is regulating body."

B.Batbayar, senior advisor to the PM: "The government is not the place that gives out goody. If you can desperately try to get involved in politics. Stay out of it.

What do you think about government involvement in private sectors and business? The question is directed to L.Enkh-Amgalan, MP. 

L.Enkh-Amgalan, MP: "There are lots of involvement from the government. Our policy is not stable. Changes can happen, but we need to look at the long term and stay consistent."

We have long history and we went through different government systems. What kind of government structure is best for us, asked the moderator Amartuvshin.O to Mr. Tsogtbaatar D.

Mr. Tsogtbaatar D: "There is always opportunity. Mongolia has low population compared to other countries. We can take a look at countries like Singapore, Luxemberg. As our market, economy is small we need to manage our budgets effectively. Corruption will exist whenever there is unmanaged budget.

I want to point out few things that I would like it make it happen:

  1. Only diplomats must have immunity, not MPs. So we need to remove this privilege.
  2. Have moral and professional ethic.
  3. Responsible government that follows their commitment to their country and people."
