Fundraising for Mongolia's 800th Anniversary Celebrations Intensifies PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 15 February 2006

Culture.mn reports Activities to commemorate the 800th Anniversary of the Establishment of the Mongolian State have intensified, with the National Committee responsible for the anniversary celebrations recently undertaking a progress review to assess the status of preparations.
Yet the level of funding for the celebrations remains a concern. Although it has been announced that a total of 20 billion tugrugs (US$16-million) will be spent on the celebrations, some of the necessary funding has yet to be obtained. Questions remain, in particular, about the feasibility of completing by the original deadline the official memorial complex to be dedicated to the Great Khaans of the Mongol Empire. (This complex will replace the mausoleum of the socialist heroes Sukhbaatar and Choibalsan - formerly situated in front of the Parliament building - which was dismantled last autumn.)
To encourage private donations to the "Great Mongolia 800" Fund, which will support the official activities and events organized by the National Organizing Committee, a commission of 10% has been offered to any individual not affiliated with the Organizing Committee who is able to collect funding from two or more donors.
In addition, providers of new products, technologies, services or designs being introduced to the market this year have been invited to make licensed use of the official 800th Anniversary logo, for a cost of US$100 for foreign organizations or 100,000 tugrugs for local organizations.
An exhibition organized by the Ministry of Road Infrastructure and Tourism has been held over the past four days to promote travel to Mongolia during the 800th Anniversary celebrations.
Meanwhile, the UB Post reports that a 40-metre statue of Chinggis Khaan is to be constructed on Tsonjin Boldog hill, 53 kilometres from Ulaanbaatar, with private funding from the Genco Tour Bureau.
