Alumnus Col. Mendee Jargalsaikhan is the Deputy Director for Mongolia’s Institute for Strategic Studies of the National Security Council. He is a graduate of the Comprehensive Security Cooperation 23-1 course and the Executive Course 01-2.

“The biggest security challenge for Mongolia is economic security issues. The neighbor in the north has a war in Europe. Our trade with European countries has been cut. We have increased dependence on China’s economy for its markets, infrastructure, and logistics. It’s a challenge for Mongolia to think about reducing our dependency on both neighbors and how to increase the self-sufficiency of the country. ”
