Mongolian President Honored by The Asia Foundation
On June 13, the President of Mongolia was honored by The Asia Foundation at a private dinner in San Francisco. The president was here to mark the opening of a formal Mongolian consulate. President Elbegdorj was one of the leaders of Mongolia's peaceful democratic revolution in 1990. Under the President, the nation has seen phenomenal economic growth with a strong focus on environmental protection and advancing anti-corruption measures. In 1991, The Asia Foundation was privileged to be the first international NGO invited to Mongolia and provided support in developing the 1992 constitution. Over the past two decades, the Foundation has taken a long-term, comprehensive approach to support Mongolia's process of democratic and market-oriented reforms.
