The Mongolian government launched a five-year plan to build a “digital nation” using data and technology to promote innovation, streamline public services, and diversify the country’s mining-dependent economy.
Mongolia is planning to achieve digital transformation up to 90 percent by 2024.
The country adopted a number of laws on digital development. These include laws on personal information protection, public information protection, cybersecurity, digital signatures, and virtual asset service providers. All laws were approved in 2020 and implemented in May 2022.
The E-Mongolia platform was launched, which provides online government services. More than 2,000 government services have now been digitized, including registering a company, obtaining a license, ordering a new passport. More than 75 percent of the adult population use E-Mongolia daily.
