The American Chamber of Commerce in Mongolia (AmCham) held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on November 23, with U.S. Ambassador to Mongolia Jennifer Zimdahl Galt, over 50 of AmCham’s members, and other leaders of the business community.
During the AGM, AmCham members discussed, voted on, and set the priorities and directions of the organization for 2017, and elected several new members to the Board of Directors.
Seven candidates competed for the three open seats on the Board of Directors and Erdenebaatar Dolgion, CEO of Bloomberg TV Mongolia; Erik Versavel, Country Representative for ING Mongolia; and Sukhee Esentsengel, Deputy Executive Director for MCS Holding were elected to serve on AmCham’s Board of Directors in 2017.
Jay Liotta, Chairman of AmCham Mongolia, delivered opening remarks and said, “2016 was a flagship year for the American Chamber of Commerce in Mongolia, having recruited 13 new members, hosted 33 events, and issued 6 position papers while becoming the first business organization to host both former and current Prime Ministers of Mongolia, the new Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the new Vice Minister of Finance. In 2017, AmCham will work toward building on the groundwork we laid in 2016 and achieving concrete results for our members and Mongolia.”
U.S. Ambassador to Mongolia Jennifer Zimdahl Galt delivered keynote remarks and noted, “As we highlight the robust U.S-Mongolia partnership throughout 2017, we look forward to continuing to work closely with AmCham to advance our shared priorities. I eagerly anticipate the further strengthening of our already strong partnership in the new year, and look forward to exploring new avenues of cooperation.”
