The two day Mongolia Economic Forum (MEF) 2016 took place on March 30, 31 under the motto "Lessons, Challenges, Solutions". We invited James Anderson, Country Representative of World Bank in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia for short interview about governance, economy forecasts and World Bank-Mongolian government cooperation.

James Anderson (Jim) is currently the World Bank's Country representative for Mongolia, a country familiar to him from his time there in the mid-1990s. Before returning to Mongolia, Jim spent six years working on a range of governance issues in Vietnam, focusing access to information, transparency, anticorruption, and human rights.

Jim’s earlier work in Mongolia focused on the informal sector and the impacts of large-scale privatization. A confirmed “governance data junkie”, he is making no effort to kick the habit. He received his PhD in Economics from the University of Maryland.
