Instant transactions between banks increases
With the launch of the Bank of Mongolia's Interbank Network, a project financed by Asian Development Bank, instant transactions rose to 3 million MNT, up from 1 million MNT prior to the network's launch.  This change will reduce the use of cash for a transaction, and make banking and financial services faster and more convenient and reliable.
