Mongolia National Day
Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
July 9, 2013

On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I would like to convey the very best wishes to the people of Mongolia as you celebrate your National Day on July 11.

There is certainly cause for celebration, as the people of Mongolia recently participated in yet another free and fair presidential election, evidence of Mongolia’s strong commitment to its democratic process. Through ongoing cooperation, the U.S. looks forward to further strengthening our bilateral relationship and promoting economic growth that will benefit both our countries.

I would like to express our gratitude to Mongolia for your invaluable contribution to coalition and international peacekeeping activities.

Mongolia is playing an active and important role in promoting peace and stability around the world, and the United States stands with you as partner and friend.

“Greed keeps men forever poor, even the abundance of
This world will not make them rich.”
– Mongolian proverb
On April 9, photographer Chiara Goia will open an exhibit at The Half King of her images from the fastest growing economy in the world—Mongolia. Chiara’s work  looks at the cultural impact of Mongolia’s sudden economic growing pains and boons.

“Over the course of a generation, the Mongolia of pastoral nomads herding on grand steppes is moving into memory,” says Half King curator Anna Van Lenten. “Massive deposits of gold, copper, silver, and coal are luring foreign investment, raising prices, and despoiling the steppes. Chiara’s images capture the unease of a people whose cultural heritage hangs in the balance, as they adapt over the course of a single generation, to a market economy.”

The Half King Photography Series is dedicated to showing exceptional documentary photography. In tandem with its reading series, it fosters a dialog between photographers and writers that underscores the importance of their relationship. Co-curating its photography series are James Price, photo editor at Newsweek, and Anna Van Lenten, writer and editor.

Chiara Goia was born and raised in Italy. Her clients include The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Time, Le Figaro, and Vanity Fair. Among her recognitions are the Sony World Photography Award, the Canon prize for emerging photographers, and PDN‘s 30.  Documenting Mongolia’s dizzying transformations is an ongoing project.

Hillary Clinton Congratulates Mongolia


“The brave young people who gathered on the streets in those cold December days in 1989, including a young man who would one day be elected as your new President, helped pave the way for Mongolia to become a dynamic and durable democracy. All over the world that year, we saw a flowering of freedom. People stood up and walls came down,” said Clinton.

“Democracy is never easy – Americans can attest to that. And Mongolia has faced its share of challenges. But through every challenge, the people of Mongolia have pulled together and have risen to the occasion. You have become a model for emerging democracies everywhere. Whenever I visit a country that is struggling to become more democratic, I say what I said when I was in Mongolia: “Let them come to Mongolia!” Because I will never forget my own visit in 1995 — the sweeping beauty of the steppe, the warmth and hospitality of the Mongolian people, and the aspirations of a nation committed to progress after decades of totalitarian rule

“In the years since, Mongolia has consolidated those early achievements and strengthened your democracy. Today even, Mongolian troops are serving around the world as peacekeepers, helping to bring stability to troubled lands.”

“Mongolians and Americans are fighting side by side in Afghanistan against violent extremists who threaten peace-loving people everywhere. We honor the service and sacrifice of your citizens, and we reaffirm the broad partnership between our two nations that is helping build a more peaceful and prosperous world.”
