Discover Mongolia Business Tour





Strategically located between Europe and Asia, Mongolia provides rare opportunities for savvy business leaders and investors to start new businesses and expand existing ones to penetrate the local market or to leverage Mongolia in accessing larger markets like China, Russia, Japan and the Southeast Asia.

Participants of Discover Mongolia Business Tour will see and experience much more than mines and horses on this unique trip that will sow the seeds for great wealth creation. In order to optimize the tour agenda and outcome, the tour is organized in partnerships with the leading public and private institutions, namely the National Development Agency – the Regulatory Agency of the Government of Mongolia, the Business Council of Mongolia, and the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce.

Unlike conventional events and exhibitions, mostly focused on specific sectors like mining and construction, Discover Mongolia Business Tour will provide rare and irresistible opportunities for its participants. To highlight, this business and leisure combined tour will enable its participants to discover business opportunities at customized events and private meetings, to network with successful business leaders in Mongolia to form strategic partnerships as well as to experience the natural beauty and nomadic culture of the country, and to indulge in the cuisine, the arts and festival of Mongolia.
