AmCham Mongolia Statement on the Kapla Case

ULAANBAATAR—The American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) in Mongolia is wholly committed to promoting foreign investment and stronger commercial relations between the United States and Mongolia.

We remain concerned; however, that this case will have a chilling effect on the business environment in Mongolia given that Mr. Kapla is an American business executive. As a result of Mr. Kapla’s evident denial of due process, we are not able to support the continuation of negotiations between the United States and Mongolia for a second grant by the Millennium Challenge Corporation. However, we will strongly support the resumption of these negotiations when the situation is properly resolved.

We look forward to returning to the important work of promoting investment and economic growth in Mongolia.
