Is the worst over for Mongolian commodities: More upside than downside?
  • Due to production cutbacks, China’s loan stimulus and improved housing starts, this year has started much better for commodities than many expected.  But is this upturn sustainable given the continued potential for excess supplies and huge economic uncertainties going forward?  How will these factors impact on Mongolian commodity prospects, notably in copper and coal, and other commodities.  This presentation will make sense of these mixed signals that are vital to the future of the Mongolian economy
