Common issues of the soum LED strategy
Importance of the soum LED strategy as a guideline document
The Soum government had previously made efforts to diversify local businesses into different markets and establish cooperation between the government and the private sector. The soum LED strategy, developed through collective and committed input from the implementing agencies and our community, symbolizes the future prosperity of our soum.
Background and Justification
It would be impossible to create this strategy without the tremendous support and contribution of the private sector. The representatives were satisfied that the strategy has covered all spheres of the extraordinary agenda of creating a favorable environment for business development.
The philosophy behind the soum LED strategy

Create an environment that fosters a climate of cooperation, enables transparent and effective governance, and responds to community needs and challenges for the development of a prosperous economy and businesses.

Geographical location: Bayankhongor soum (town) is located in the southeastern part of aimag territory and shares borders with Bayan-Ovoo, Erdenetsogt and Ulziit soums. However, such rural-to-urban migration has been quite low these days, resulting in a significant decline in the mechanical growth of the soum population.

Although the total budget and total budget revenues have a growing tendency, the share of local revenues in total budget revenues remains low. The products of trade and services, which are the fastest growing sectors during the last 5 years, account for 67.4% of the total GDP. Therefore, the main sectors that dominate the overall economy are trade, services and livestock production.
Regarding the composition of the catfish herd, goats make up 49.5% or more than half of the herd. 96.5% of the total livestock in Som is privately owned by pastoral families and livestock farmers. Vegetable production: Around 1000 households and 20 organizations in the soum cultivated 135.1 ha of land for vegetable production.
In the soum center, the places to see are modern monuments - the Independence monument, the Friendship complex and the Erdenekhairlkhan religious complex. This is the reason why the soum LED strategy has put the development of tourism as the first priority of medium-term economic development.
