CROWN Agents was recently engaged for a contract with the Mongolia Ministry of Mining (MoM) in an effort to streamline the export process for the mining industry. The MoM asked Crown to review how data is shared between the various Ministries involved in export regulations and look at ways to improve data sharing and exchange.
UK-based Crown Agents is developing the IT blueprints for a simplified data sharing environment that streamlines and minimizes transactional requirements between the various government agencies and departments.
It says the new data sharing environment will provide the MoM with access to data collected by other Mongolian export regulatory ministries. “This new data environment will also provide a single online site for mining industry stakeholders to access real time information and submit data thereby facilitating improved strategic decision making and reporting.
“The enhanced capabilities and reduced regulatory hurdles will help increase the efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency of the mining industry in turn increasing Mongolia’s overall economic competitiveness in this sector.
“We recognize the need for governments to oversee and manage the activities of extractives industries while minimizing regulatory burdens. Our advisory services related to technology are focused on striking a balance between often diverging aims to ensure the long term economic competitiveness of developing countries extractives industries while protecting the environment and enhancing tax revenues,” Crown Agents states.
