Dear Members and Friends,
With 2018 drawing to a close on AustCham Mongolia`s most successful year to date in terms of membership, business community initiatives and resources (staffing), it makes me very proud of what we have all achieved together!
Our last two signature events for the year were so well attended and we thank our members for their involvement and for showing their appreciation.
The Children’s Xmas Party: Santa and the Grinch put on a great show and was enjoyed by all the children. I even saw a few adults siting on Santa’s knee.
The year-end Sundowner set attendance records due to the fact that it was an unofficial chance to share a drink and a few words with our Patron and departing Ambassador HE John Langtry.
As Australia`s first resident Ambassador to Mongolia he will be missed. The involvement of the Embassy has without a doubt contributed to the success of AustCham Mongolia and I am sure this is just the beginning. For his contribution, John has been awarded a lifetime membership to the Chamber and we wish him all the best for his future endeavors.
I would like to personally thank the board of AustCham for their commitment and contributions. I understand their time is valuable and their support, guidance and initiatives are what allows us to serve our membership.
A special thank you to Anujin, our Executive Director. She joined the Chamber this year at one of the most dynamic times and it is a pleasure to watch her grow in leadership.
Oyunaa our Admin & Events Manager who you all know by now has been with the Chamber through the formative years and is the back bone of the Chamber. She has seen it all. Thank you.
2019 promises to continue with our growth strategy. We will be presenting initiatives such as:
- Business community topical advocacy
- Regional Chamber round table initiatives (TBC)
- International accredited training course
- International speakers
This is year it is AustCham Mongolia’s turn to host Australia Day. Last year the Australian Embassy had sand brought into one of the hotels to build a beach! What great idea to have a beach in Mongolia for those surfers and beach lovers that miss the Australian coast? Sponsorship opportunities this event are open.
Finally, on behalf of the board, I would like to wish you all a safe and Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New year’s.
We look forward to your continued support in 2019.
