                    Zorigt Dashdorj is Executive Director of Mongolia
                 Development Strategy Institute.

         As all the Mongolians, he goes by one name, Zorigt, and Dashdorj is his father's name and used as the family name in Western-style documents. Also he is known as Dashdorjiin Zorigt, as Mongolians call themselves, which literally can be translated as "Zorigt, (son) of Dashdorj".   

As former Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy of Mongolia (2008-2012) and Member of Parliament (2009-2012), he is one of most prominent figures in Mongolia's mining and energy sectors. During his tenure, multi-billion dollar mining and energy projects were signed or initiated, propelling Mongolia to become one of the fastest growing frontier economies. He is a strong backer of renewable energies and with his strong support international banks invested in the first commercial scale wind farm in Mongolia. This is the first, and so far the last, public-private partnership infrastruture projet in Mongolia. 

Prior to becoming a government minister, Dashdorj Zorigt was the founding chief executive officer of a state-owned mining company Erdenes MGL in charge of strategic mining projects. He served more than 10 years in public service as director of policy planning in the Ministry of Industry and Trade and economic cooperation policy planning at the Ministry of Finance and Economy. Dashdorj Zorigt started his career in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and served as attache, Deputy Director for Strategic Planning and Coordination and First Secretary of Mongolia's Permanent Mission to the United Nations.

Currently, he has a private consulting business and serves on corporate board of directors of several prominent Mongolian companies.
