Mongolia Mission and Seminar for Construction and Mining Equipment
Monday 22 September to Friday 26 September 2014
The CEA has been appointed by UKTI to run its third five day seminar mission to Ulaanbaatar to showcase the best of UK manufacturing and expertise in the construction and mining equipment sectors. The 2013 seminar mission resulted in £10 million of sales for the nine participating companies – quite a return on their investment.
The seminar gives UK companies a platform to present their products to an audience of around 75-100 targeted Mongolian delegates of equipment end users, government representatives, mine operators, contractors and equipment distributors, with 30 minutes formal presentations followed by a networking lunch and one to one meetings with delegates. The 2013 seminar was featured live on Mongolia TV news at one and on evening news bulletins. The rest of the week is taken up with group visits and individual meetings and rounded off with an evening at the (in)famous British pub, the Steppe Inne.
Infrastructure investment in Mongolia to 2016 and beyond includes:
- Over 5,500 kms of new and improved roads (including 212 kms and seven new bridges in Ulaanbaatar alone)
- A new international airport in Ulaanbaatar with improvements and extensions to regional airports and strips
- 100,000 new apartments for nomads moving into Ulaanbaatar
- New CHP Power station in Ulaanbaatar
- US$5.2 billion investment in 5,600 kms of new and upgraded railways

The Mongolian economy grew at enviable 11.7% in 2013 and whilst this is slightly lower than the heady days of 2011 thanks to reduced demand for its commodities, especially from China, it is expected to remain stable over the next two years. With the election of a new government, it is hoped that Phase II of the copper mine at Oyu Tolgoi will be resumed by the end of 2014. Travel grants of £620 per eligible company are offered under the UKTI MAP scheme. Places are limited so please complete and return your booking form now via firstname.lastname@example.org.
