The IMF is willing to receive any requests and will work for the right solutions. Although the Mongolian economy saw growth in less than a year, it has to keep its stability because the economy can change.” Gottlieb noted that Mongolia needs to take immediate action in response to its poor rating from the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering. The Prime Minister said that his cabinet work toward diversifying the economy and not only relying on the mining sector.
