After the meeting, the Director of the MPP Group S.Byambatsogt and Deputy Director D.Khayanhyarvaa summarized the results of the meeting, saying: “The 2016 State Budget Law plans to reduce the salary of the 2900 political and government civil servants by 30%. Our Group does not accept this provision. Salary reductions will not end the economic crisis. Instead of this, cutting the unnecessary expenses on petrol” transportation, conferences, and foreign appointments from a level identical to2012 is essential to solve the economic problems”.
