A. BACKGROUND 

Mongolia received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) for the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project. The Objective of the SFFS Project is to contribute to the Government of Mongolia’s efforts to strengthen fiscal and financial stability and improve the quality of expenditure. The project is designed into five components: (i) Strengthening Macroeconomic and Fiscal Management; (ii) Improving the Efficiency of Public Financial Management; (iii) Enhancing Financial Sector Stability; (iv) Strengthening the Social Protection System; (v) Project Management and Monitoring. The objectives are to strengthen fiscal responsibility and implementing relevant policy measures; improve fiscal discipline; strengthen the resiliency of the banking system; improve public expenditure quality in social protection, and provide support for Project implementation, coordination, monitoring and evaluation, including, inter alia, audit arrangements, reporting requirements, procurement and financial management activities respectively. For more details, please refer to the Project Appraisal Document Report No. PAD2269.

The overall objective of Component A of the Project is to strengthen fiscal responsibility and support the implementation of relevant policy measures toward (a) improving the quality of expenditure management, (b) strengthening macroeconomic and budget policy-making capacity, and (c) improving regulatory processes. Within this component there are also specific activities planned for furthering tax reform including by introducing the latest international taxation rules and regulations.

The Government of Mongolia (GOM) has been undertaking customs reforms to increase trade turnover and support international trade facilitation as it is important for the economic development of Mongolia. The revenue from international trade is significant and accounts for 27.7% of total government revenue and grants. The GOM has taken a number of steps to encourage international trade, including development of key infrastructures, such as building laboratories to check the quality of goods and mineral commodities, expanding capacity of ports at borders, replacing and upgrading equipment used for scanning the goods and commodities, and revamping of the electronic declaration systems to cut time and cost of trade and reduce human contacts for the purpose of eliminating red tape and corruption. In 2022 fiscal year the GOM is planning to take further measures to facilitate international trade to reduce border clearance time and documentation cost through amending relevant regulations and integrating regulatory functions by various inspecting agencies.             

The GOM joined the WTO Agreement on Trade Facilitation and the Asia Pacific Trade Agreement (APTA) to increase trade turnover and expand trade cooperation with its regional trading partners. Going forward, the Government and the MOF are planning to review and revise the existing Customs Law and the Law on Customs Duty and Tariff, both approved in 2008, and related resolutions and regulations in coordination with the aforementioned international agreements and the ongoing customs reform objectives.    

Considering the economic and fiscal challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and favorable commodity market development, the GOM will be planning to expedite the customs reform and improve the legislative environment regarding the trade to support short term revenue mobilization measures toward ensuring and accelerating post pandemic recovery and supporting further fiscal consolidation. 

Within the context above, the MOF is seeking a local consultant to develop and improve domestic legislations for undertaking further customs reform.
