The Judicial Standing Committee has created of a government’s special team that will be in charge of the drafting of an upcoming casino bill. The group will be leaded by “L. Enkhbold,” Member of the Parliament.
The new casino draft would be based on current Vietnamese, South Korean and Cambodian legislation. The gaming activity will be held near Mongolia’s borders with Buryatia and Kyakhta in Russia, China, as well as in international airports in Ulan Bator, Mongolia’s capital.
The new casino project would propose the legalisation of two casinos for tourists, which would be expected to collect between US$29.7 million to US$52.2 million.
Currently, gambling is prohibited in Mongolia. Earlier, former Prime Minister Chimediin Saikhanbileg has proposed to allow gambling for Mongolians over the age of 25 years old, which would have an access to casinos once a year.
