During its weekly meeting, Cabinet discussed improving leadership management and operational expenditures of state-owned enterprises.
At the meeting, Cabinet decided to dissolve five state-owned companies operating with a large amount of deficits including Industrial Complex, Mongol Harvest Corporation, Mongol Meat Corporation, Mongol Seal and Road Facilities Rental.
Cabinet Secretariat G.Zandanshatar noted that debts and deficits of the companies will be repaid and balanced by selling their assets. He added that state-owned enterprises reported two billion MNT for expenditures of meetings, workshops and other events being hosted by ministries and government agencies in the past four years, which is why Cabinet will take measures to dissolve or merge state-owned enterprises to improve their management and operations, and reduce their operational expenditures. G.Zandanshatar pointed out that directors of state-owned enterprises will make contracts with the government to improve the enterprises’ management.
