This Technical Assistance Report discusses technical advice and recommendations given by the IMF mission to the authorities of Mongolia regarding updating and improving the consumer price index (CPI) and the industrial producer price index (IPPI). The IMF mission recommends an adjustment to the expenditure shares in the updated CPI based on alternative data sources and improvements to the compilation procedure used to estimate the monthly price change for automobiles and motorcycles. The selection of enterprises and products in the rebased IPPI should ensure appropriate coverage of exports. The mission also recommends that this process include a review of 2015 customs data to ensure that relevant enterprises and their products are selected in proportion to their significance to overall production.

Mongolia meets many of the General Data Dissemination System (GDDS) recommendations for coverage, periodicity, and timeliness. The major exceptions include the following: the incomplete coverage of the international investment position; the nonavailability of a primary commodity, agricultural, or other relevant production index; the producer price index; wages and earnings; nonguaranteed private external debt; as well as the nondissemination of data on central government debt and government-guaranteed debt; public and publicly guaranteed external debt and debt service schedule; gross official reserves; and reserve-related liabilities.

This is the first issue of IMF Staff Papers published under a special partnership between the IMF and Palgrave Macmillan. Very little will change with regard to the journal's visual appearance, though significant service quality enhancements (e.g., an on-line interactive edition) will rollout before the end of 2007.

Inflation in Mongolia resembles a roller coaster ride with sharp rises and steep drops. Understanding why is critical for formulating and assessing monetary policy. Food prices are found to be a key driver of inflation, and, not surprising given Mongolia’s geography, are determined primarily by local supply conditions, highly seasonal, and subject to large but short-lived shocks (usually weather related). Nonetheless, demand factors are also found to be significant in explaining price movements and empirical evidence suggests that a 10 percent increase in government wages, for example, would push up underlying inflation by 1 percentage point. So, while inflation will remain volatile due to agricultural shocks, there is space for macroeconomic stabilization policy to help reduce inflation volatility.

This Selected Issues paper analyzes the main determinants of inflation in Mongolia using empirical tests based on a structural model approach and vector autoregression model, with a view to assessing whether inflation is predominantly affected by commodity prices or by money supply developments. Simulation and impulse response analyses are used to estimate components of the inflation dynamics under various exogenous shocks. The paper also addresses the mineral wealth management issues faced by Mongolia, and describes the mining sector and its envisaged development over the medium term.
