The Ministry of Social Welfare and Labor has prepared a draft law governing the migration of Mongolians for employment abroad as also the terms of foreign nationals working in Mongolia. The draft favors imposing a limit on the number of Mongolians going to work abroad, and also indicates certain eligibility restrictions. It is also proposed that those returning home after working in any foreign country will be counted as skilled workers. Efforts are on to procure certificates for those with work experience in South Korea so that they can be considered for employment in foreign invested companies in Mongolia.
The number of foreign employees working in the mining and minerals sector will be determined after a review of the supply and demand situation in the country. The draft is slated to be discussed during the Autumn session of Parliament.
