The Business Council of Mongolia (BCM) was founded in the fall of 2007 to promote increased trade and investment in Mongolia. BCM represents all investors in Mongolia, domestic and foreign, on business climate issues. Advocacy efforts with the Government, Ministry and Parliamentary officials on issues vital to investors in Mongola are of utmost importance.
Allens Arthur Robinson (Allens) has been formally welcomed as a member of the Business Council of Mongolia at a ceremony held last night in the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar.
Allens becomes the first Australian top-tier firm to be made a member of the Council. Partners Erin Feros and David Wenger, as well as Senior Associate John Koshy and Lawyer Emma Wanchap, attended a meeting of the Council that formally accepted Allens as a member.
The Business Council of Mongolia brings together Mongolian and foreign-based businesses to act as an independent Mongolian business advocacy group.
Ms Feros said formal membership in the Business Council of Mongolia was a natural progression for the firm, which has been involved in numerous significant transactions in Mongolia over the past few years.
'We see the firm's membership of the Mongolian Business Council as an essential component of our Mongolia group's activities,' Ms Feros said.
'We welcome this opportunity to meet with colleagues and build relationships here on the ground in Ulaanbaatar.'
