Western Mongolia's Road to Development

Geoff Riley

2nd October 2016

I used to have an A level student who insisted that bridges were the answer to more or less every development challenge. Naturally, building bridges is better than constructing walls (!) and he did get a top A* grade in his A2 macro! But roads matter too and this short video from the Asian Development Bank provides a timely and clear example of how new highways reduce the time and cost of getting key exports to neighbouring countries.

Western Mongolia's Road to Development

A highway linking Mongolia to neighbouring Russia and the People's Republic of China is bringing development, jobs, and social services to the country's remote western regions.
