During Project Design Senior officials from the Ministry of Finance, Bank of Mongolia, the Financial Regulatory Commission (FRC), Mongolian Bankers Association, World Bank (WB) and International Monetary Fund were during the TA reconnaisance mission from 25 to 29 February 2008. Among the major issues raised by both government and non-government stakeholders have been the need to strengthen the capital markets during the current period of high liquidity in the economy and to build capacity for the FRC. WB is not implementing any financial sector program for Mongolia in 2008 but the Mongolian Stock Exchange has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Korean Stock Exchange to support infrastructure and trading for US$5 million.
