Myanmar journalists exchange experiences in Mongolia


Twenty journalists of prestigious Burmese news agencies are attending a five-day workshop in Ulaanbaatar to learn how Mongolia adopted democracy and its experiences that led to it. The event is hosted by Think Tank Institute of Mongolia and initiated by the Office of the President.
The first President of Mongolia P.Ochirbat delivered a lecture titled “New Democratic Constitutions, Free Election” and exchanged thoughts with the Burmese journalists.
Mongolian delegates also lectured on the Mineral Resource Law, privatization, free market economy and monetary policies.
Through their lectures, State General Prosecutor D.Dorligjav and Chairman of the Office of Ulaanbaatar City Governor Yo.Gerelchuluun highlighted how Mongolia, a communist country with a state controlled economy, where all properties belonged to the state, transferred to the free market economy, how bank structures were transformed, and how free trade became available in 1990s.
Burmese journalists agreed that Myanmar citizens are currently able to run shops, privatize lands and have rights to initiate companies and freely travel abroad which differs from Mongolia in the 1990s.
The journalists were most interested in knowing about how Mongolia shifted their political, economic and social structures in a short period of time during the 1990s.
