Extractive Industries

The mining sector is a major contributor to the national economy: in the first half of 2014 it represented 18.5% of GDP and 17.5% of budget revenue according to Bank of Mongolia. Minerals and curde oil accounted for 88% of exports in 2013. Major exports include copper, gold, molybdemum, coal, iron ore and fluorspar concentrates. The Oyu Tolgoi copper and gold project is expected to account for one third of GDP by 2020. EITI implementation plays a key role in strengthening resource revenue management and transparency.

EITI Reporting

The country produces EITI Reports that disclose revenues from the extraction of its natural resources. Companies disclose what they have paid in taxes and other payments and the government discloses what it has received. These two sets of figures are compared and reconciled.

EITI Implementation

Mongolia published its 2014 EITI Report in December 2015. It has also developed a medium-term recommendations (2015-2020), which include broader objectives such as clarifying companies' social responsibilities, enhance civil society's participation in decision-making and improve access to information by local communities and herders. 

The government of Mongolia committed to implement EITI in December 2005 and was admitted as EITI Candidate on 27 September 2007.
