Why this project is a Good Practice example:
The project was of great significance for supporting an increase in employment opportunities (as a direct result of transportation jobs), as well as the complexities and issues around penetration of new markets, improving labor market quality, and the legislative/regulatory and political economy challenges of working across governments. To share our experiences, we presented a national seminar “Transit Transportation relations of Mongolia, China and Russia,” which was organized and sponsored by Economic Policy Reform and Competitiveness project of USAID in Ulanbator, Mongolia in 11 March, 2008. We presented our findings to delegates, businessmen and participants from Foreign Affairs Ministry, Ministry of Trade and Production, Ministry of Road, Transportation and Tourism, General Authority of Customs, UB Railway, Railway affairs authority, Professional Auditing Authority, General authority of boundary protection, National Committee of Trade facilitation and Mongolian Chamber of Trade and Industry, all of whom participated in this national seminar.
