In Mongolia, tourism faces personnel shortage

Thursday, June 22, 2023


In tourism because of pandemic, the tour operators lost around 78% of their human resources along with tourist centers almost 68%, hotels 25%, and restaurants 50%. In Mongolia, 16 universities instruct tourism specialists. In 2007, 7,251 students graduated and their number dropped to 979 last year. This is because Mongolia’s tourism industry works only during the summers, and there is no steady job opportunity, so majority of students from Ulaanbaatar like to learn and work in countries abroad.

On June 20 th , the 8th meeting under the New Revival Policy of Mongolia government took place together with Bat-Erdene Bat-Olzii, the Minister of Environment and Tourism. The meeting talked about human resources and constancy in the tourism with the university representatives, employers and students taking part in it.

Since 2007, the choice in terms of tourism profession has dropped by almost 87%. For students who have chosen tourism, the Mongolia tourism industry has declared a scholarship of 400,000,000 tugriks.
