The Minister of Finance directed the MSE to implement 2013 Parliament Resolution No. 41 on July 30, 2014. The MSE will be required to conduct research on whether payment, accounting, and clearing, through the use of new software, can be carried out in accordance with existing laws and regulations, and whether institutions participating in the market are prepared to carry out government securities trade on the Mongolian Stock Exchange.

It’s business friendly environment and strategic location could one day in the near future be used as magnet and regional financial hub. It’s strengths could be attractive for FX operations in the same way Cyprus serves as a business and tax friendly outpost for regulated firms.
