The 1000th GOXIan - Batshur Gootiiz

Batshur is a consultant at Oyu Tolgoi, one of the largest mining companies in Mongolia. She works in the Community Relations and Sustainable development team of the company, and has worked on studies on assessing company's impact on the local and regional economy. She believes that the challenges in transforming natural resources into wider economic development include weak institutions, lack of access to information, lack of infrastructure and lack of skills. She believes mining companies have a large role to play in sustainable development. And she is interested in exchanging information with GOXI members and learning about how to make that happen.
