Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Mongolia hosted the Junior Chamber International (JCI)’s Asia-Pacific Conference 2017 at home with success. In the course of four days between June 8 and 11, over 3,500 young people from 51 countries attended a total of 81 side events. The events much deserving of highlights included the “Welcome to Mongolia” event, the Business Forum, opening ceremony for the JCI Garden and the JCI Impact awards.

On Day 1, JCI Mongolia’s 13 branches opened pavilions at Buyant Ukhaa Sports Complex and promoted Mongolian traditional and cultural heritages and lifestyle. The event entertained the international guests by assembling Ger (national dwelling), letting the guests play Mongolian traditional games and giving out souvenirs.

During the Welcome to Mongolia event, guests enjoyed being portrayed as Mongolian queens and warriors and a performance by “Melodious Sound” children’s band, the winner of the first season of the Mongolia’s Got Talent show.

The 2017 JCI ASPAC incorporated a Business Forum. Research institutions have been underlining that Mongolia’s business environment is reasonably favorable for international companies and entrepreneurs. The most viable sector to invest to in Mongolia was mining, as considered at the business forum, followed by agriculture and energy.

Another highlight of the regional forum was the opening of JCI Garden, which now occupies 0.5 hectares in the National Park of Ulaanbaatar. The project was implemented by JCI Mongolia in cooperation with JCI branches in other countries. The JCI Garden has boxes installed representing the special features of continents, Asia, Europe, Africa and Americas, in which JCI operates, as well as wall of honor and a stage. In recognition of the project team’s effort, National President for JCI Japan has gifted JPY 63 million to the team.

Upon the closing ceremony, awards were granted for the best projects, best presentations and winners of debate. Most of the awards went to delegates representing JCI Hong Kong, Philippines, Cambodia, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia and India. The JCI Impact Mongolia Project was awarded the Best Social Responsibility Program. Also, a member of the JCI Impact Mongolia B.Achbayar was placed at the third place in the competition of presentations.
