People want to know more about progress on Erdenet Tavan Tolgoi

When media recently asked Mr. B. Enebish, Executive Director of Erdenet MGL, how and when members of the Executive Board of Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi would be selected, his answer was a curt “I don’t know”. This new company is to be responsible for everything to do with putting the Tavan Tolgoi deposit into operation, yet the people of Mongolia are told nothing about when it will begin the real work, who will manage it and, more important, if their selection will be done in secret.
This is all the more surprising as Parliament gave the go-ahead for formation of Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi, as a daughter company of Erdenet MGL, as long ago as July 7, but the government, which is supposed to implement this resolution, is remarkably reticent about how it is moving. From time to time Mr. Enebish tells the nation that movement of soil has begun in parts of Tavan Tolgoi, or that sites for camps have been chosen, but he does not share any information on the really important things. He says work is going on schedule, as evidenced by the advertisement seeking an Executive Director for Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi, but people would like to know that more is done and would also like to be reassured that decisions are taken openly.
