PM submits draft on government structure

PM CH.Saikhanbileg submiting a draft on governmental structure to Speaker Z.Enkhbold


On Wednesday, Prime Minister Ch.Saikhanbileg submitted drafts on governmental structure, the new government’s components, an amendment to the law on government, and a Parliamentary resolution on adopting the general structure of state administrative bodies to Speaker Z.Enkhbold for approval.
The draft states that the new government’s structure will consist of a prime minister, deputy prime minister, state minister and head of the cabinet secretariat. It will also include the following ministerial positions: environment and tourism, foreign affairs, finance, justice, industry, defense, construction and urban planning, education, culture and science, roads and transportation, mining, labor, population development and social welfare, food and agriculture, energy, health and sport, and a state minister of Mongolia.
PM Saikhanbileg believes that a state minister of Mongolia should work in the government to implement major national development projects and programs important to Mongolia’s prosperity.
The state minister will decide on the issues of necessary investments for these major projects and programs, and provide consistent policy guidelines and directives for project implementation. Ch.Saikhanbileg believes that this will positively influence the results of these projects and included that the state minister won’t control any of the new government’s 15 ministries.
The Ministry of Environment and Tourism, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Finance, and Ministry of Justice will be general functional ministries and the remaining 11 will become sectoral ministries.
In accordance with the submission of the government’s structure to the Parliament, the parliament resolution on adopting the general structure of state administrative bodies was revised.
The revised resolution proposes having ten government regulatory agencies, eighteen government enforcement agencies, and to liquidate the Nuclear Energy Agency and Takhar organizations.
In the past three years, foreign investments have dramatically decreased and the draft states that the issues of improving investor trust, increasing investments, intensifying the state and private sector’s business activities, and increasing the efficiency of local properties should be improved under the direct control of the PM.
The following day, a meeting of the Standing Committee on State Structure was scheduled to discuss the draft bill on government structure but was indefinitely delayed.
There is speculation that the delay might be a result of political parties and the coalition caucus being unlikely to reach a final agreement on the government’s structure.
