COVID-19 and legal issues in business

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD”) launched the initiative “COVID-19 Crisis Response - Provision of Emergency Legal Advice to Small and Medium Enterprises in Mongolia” to enable small and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”) in Mongolia to mitigate the deepening impact of the coronavirus pandemic. This initiative organized a series of three webinars, funded by the European Union and implemented in collaboration with KhanLex Partners (“KhanLex” or “Consultant”). During the webinars, KhanLex provided free legal information and advice aimed at supporting COVID-19 responses by SMEs in Mongolia. All webinars are available to watch at:

The purpose of this “Question and Answer Paper” (the “Q&A Paper”) is to summarise the content of the three webinars as well as to answer the questions raised by participants during the webinars. On behalf of the webinar participants, KhanLex would like to thank the European Union for funding this critical project and the EBRD for developing and implementing it. We would also like to acknowledge two supporting organizations of the project – the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Mongolian Small and Medium Industry Office of the Government of Mongolia. Unless otherwise indicated in this Q&A paper, the cut-off date for the data used herein is 31 January 2021.
