The New Great Game: Potential Impact of Mongolia’s Mineral Development on China, Russia, Japan and Korea

Print PDF

The need for key minerals to feed the Chinese economic juggernaut, as well as the advanced economies of Japan and South Korea, has attracted the attention of the global political and financial investment communities. Mongolia, home to vast resources of coal, copper, rare earth minerals, uranium, gold and silver, had a 17% growth rate in 2011 and this year to date. It has the potential to strongly influence the political, economic, and environmental atmosphere of its North Asian region. Mongolia’s version of resource nationalism is not only of concern to the regional players, but also to the United States’ strategic and political interests in Asia for the next several decades.

Dr. Alicia Campi will describe the mineral and energy resource situation faced by the consumer countries, their challenge to find alternate sources of raw materials, and concerns about Mongolian mineral development policies. Mongolia’s mineral resource and development strategies will be presented together with an analysis of lessons learned from the actions of major foreign investors and Russia during the past 10 years. She will explain Mongolia’s use of mineral investment laws and resource nationalism to maximize its ability to achieve its national security and economic goals. Dr. Campi will comment on US government policy objectives for its relationship with a democratic Mongolia that faces growing corruption issues. Particular emphasis will be placed upon how the rise of Mongolia could impact US-Chinese, US-Russia n, and US-Japanese relations overall as well as America’s goals for North Asia n regional harmony.
