Historically, the main development sphere in the country is agriculture and livestock. If we talk about fossils, then on the territory of the country you can find quite large deposits of copper, which are now being actively extracted. In addition, there is also coal, tin, and molybdenum ores. Recently, gold and tungsten ore have been actively mined. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Mongolian economy took a significant hit. The situation was further worsened by the ruling political party, which refused to make any drastic changes like focusing more attention on the European and American markets. Only with time was the party able to change its policy and carry out reforms.
The economy has begun to stabilize and improve over the past 15 years. The Country owes much of her developmental strides to the presence of a huge number of mineral deposits. Unfortunately however, Mongolia does not have the necessary manpower and financial resources to achieve full development. If we are to talk about the country’s Agricultural sector, it is this sphere that is the basis of the entire economy today. It employs more than half of the total number of the able-bodied population of the country. Agriculture provides at least 40% of annual GDP. It should be noted that livestock breeding has developed actively. To date, according to international data, the Country is ranked third in the world with regards to the ratio of the number of cattle to every Mongolian citizen, and the figure was discovered to be twelve cattle per person. About 5% of all exports are products from the agricultural sector. Copyright

A significant part of the outputs of the Mongolian industry is exported. Some of the leading products in this case include; natural fur, wool, leather, livestock products, molybdenum ore and fluorite. Despite the fact that several decades ago the development and extraction of phosphorite was suspended in favor of the preservation of the environment, the availability of modern technologies has enabled the country to continue to successfully extract and sell this material.
