“It was a fascinating conference,” said Odell. “They are building a new city focused on science and technology and moving their major universities out of Ulaanbaatar, their capital city, because there is no room to grow.”

The symposium included domestic and foreign policy makers, experts and scientists who contributed ideas on how to structure and manage a science and technology zone and described its potential economic impact.

The president of Mongolia, Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj (pictured at right), welcomed the participants and listened to their presentations.
