During the last 20 years Mongolia's economy has become relatively less complex, moving from the 110th to the 134th position in the ECI rank.
These economic complexity rankings use 6 digit exports classified according to the HS96 classification. We consider only countries with population of at least 1 million and exports of at least $1 billion, and products with world trade over $500 million.

Mongolia has a high level of specialization in Animal Hair (691), Feldspar (288), Copper Ore (66.4), Coal Briquettes (53.2), and Zinc Ore (37.2). Specialization is measured using RCA, an index that takes the ratio between Mongolia observed and expected exports in each product.
The top export opportunities for Mongolia according to the relatedness index, are Uranium and Thorium Ore (0.072), Manganese Ore (0.07), Other Ores (0.067), Maté (0.061), and Raw Copper (0.06). Relatedness measures the distance between a country's current exports and each product. The barchart show only products that Mongolia is not specialized in.
The product space is a network connecting products that are likely to be co-exported. The product space can be used to predict future exports, since countries are more likely to start exporting products that are related to current exports. Relatedness measures the distance between a product, and all of the products it is currently specialized in.
The Complexity-Relatedness diagram compares the risk and the strategic value of a country's potential export oppotunities.
Relatedness is a predictive of the probability that a country increases its exports in a product. Complexity, is associated with higher levels of income, economic growth, less income inequality, and lower emissions.
