16 April 2012 — On Monday the 2nd British Business Breakfast was held at the Kempinski Hotel to welcome His Royal Highness, Prince Michael of Kent, and his delegation of senior business people. PricewaterhouseCoopers hosted the event, attended by senior Mongolian politicians and representatives of many of the largest companies in Mongolia, as well as the British Ambassador and members of the British business community in Mongolia. The event was organised to celebrate the growing commercial ties between the United Kingdom and Mongolia following the example of companies like Rio Tinto, London Stock Exchange and PricewaterhouseCoopers with their successful operations in Mongolia.
Carolyn Clarke, Managing Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers Mongolia commented that “the diversity of attendees at the breakfast event clearly demonstrates the interest these two countries have in working together for the future benefit and prosperity of Mongolia.” The commercial connections will continue to be developed through the remainder of the delegation’s visit, with a focus on the education, infrastructure and mining sectors. In his speech His Royal Highness commented on the fact that in this 50th year of relationships between the UK and Mongolia it is interesting to see how British businesses are looking to support and work alongside Mongolian enterprises. Boldbaatar Ochirsuren, Manager for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Mongolia said
“I am proud to be associated with an event that is committed to supporting these important business relationships and that will strength the Mongolian economy in the future.”
In addition to developing business relationships, His Royal Highness and his delegation will be launching a new charitable enterprise for Mongolia, “Care for Children”, focusing on providing permanent homes in families for orphaned children. A gala dinner was being held at the Continental Hotel last night.
