Mongolian Political Parties and Some Problems with Tavan Tolgoi Coal Mine
This article examines the mining policy of Mongolian political parties in the case of Tavan Tolgoi coal mine. According to the research, the political parties don’t follow a certain mining policy today; it has a weak capacity for development. There is lack of transparency in mining policy, moreover, the pressure exerted by the political parties on mining industry is very high. Weak governance and low potential of the political parties has led to inefficient use of natural resources. In the last elections both the Democratic Party and the People's Party used the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine to promote their own objectives. The political parties need to develop a long-term strategy. The author has proposed some recommendations for the political parties in Mongolia to use the Tavan Tolgoi coal mine.
