The online public event will be hosted by LSE IDEAS on March 20
Mongolia-China relations entered 2023 under sharply altered circumstances from one year earlier. International sanctions on Russia, Mongolia’s other giant neighbour, have heightened the importance of smooth relations with China; even as Mongolia seeks to diversify its foreign trade partners it is now more than ever the case that all roads to the rest of the world lead through China. In that context, the Mongolian government has shown a greater willingness to expand economic ties to China than ever before.
Speakers: Bill Bikales, LSE IDEAS Associate, former economic advisor to the Prime Minister of Mongolia, Enkhbayar Namjildorj, Director of Economic Security Research Centre and Chandmani Sukhbaatar, Analyst, Centre for International Security Studies.
