Our vision is to make a notable contribution to Mongolia’s development and prosperity as a global economic player, and as a country in general.
Our core values are simple:
- Success in any business should not be measured by financial accomplishments alone. We all should strive to leave behind a better society and land for our children and grandchildren. Social and Community Benefits are very much in the focus of our activities.
- Long lasting success can only be achieved if and when all stakeholders are happy: our employees, our customers, our business partners… We believe in building long-term mutually beneficial relationships: with our employees, our customers, our business partners, and our shareholders. Life is just too short to live otherwise.
- As our slogan indicates, we believe in constant and continuous innovation. Whether it’s ideas, strategy, or methodologies, we try to keep it as an ongoing improvement process.
