Mongolia's economy has evolved from a traditional agriculture-based economy to one based on mining and extraction. Mongolia also has large reserves of minerals used in industry, such as copper, coal, molybdenum, tin, and tungsten. Significant foreign investment by businesses and governments has resulted in an economic boom. According to the IMF, Mongolia's GDP increased to US $13.6 billion in market exchange rates for the fiscal year 2019, while real GDP increased by 5.1%. Many historical and political shifts in the 1990s altered Mongolia's economic structure.

Following foreign investment reforms, the economy has risen and is emerging to develop infrastructure. A massive influx of 1500 companies from 50 countries has contributed more than $300 billion to Mongolia.
