Dalanzadgad Expected to Have Highest GDP Per Capita

By , 21 April, 2011, No Comment

Dalanzadgad is the capital of the South Gobi province and fastest growing provincial capital in Mongolia.

Our Firm (Eurasia Capital) estimates that the population of Dalanzadgad will quadruple in the next five years and by 2015 this town will enjoy the highest GDP per capita in Mongolia. South Gobi is home to two crown jewels of Mongolia: Tavan Tolgoi, the world’s largest untapped coking coal deposit and Oyu Tolgoi, the world’s largest undeveloped copper & gold mine.  We anticipate Dalanzadgad becoming a regional center for dozens of mining companies and hundreds of firms in multi-billion dollar mining supply chain.

FYI, Erdenet, the second largest city in Mongolia has estimated US$6,400 GDP per capita, the highest in Mongolia.  Erdenet is the capital of the Orkhon province, founded in 1975 as a new industrial center after discovery of the world class Erdenet copper mine in 1974. Erdenet is home to Erdenet Mining Corp., Mongolia’s largest company, biggest taxpayer and exporter, and accounts for 13% of the country’s GDP.
