The Mongolian cabinet has drafted steps to increase the number of civil servants by 3300 in 2020. Because of a recent rise in the number of civil servants rose to over 200,000, there has been fierce public criticism and demands that the number be cut. However, the cabinet said that number of civil servants needs to be increased due to the various newly constructed schools, kindergartens which are coming on line. The cabinet has budgeted an additional MNT 52 billion to cover the salaries of these new people.
