Dennis, Your points are well taken. And much along the lines the team here is responding. Andrew Goodland, Erdene, and our rural development team are busy engaging with policy makers, on the medium term issues that need to be addressed. One example, is the Livestock Sector Study, which Parliament has initiated as the basis for medium and long term reforms. At a discussion of the strategy last month, over 30 MPs, both Dy. Speakers, and a large number of NGOs, had participated. This Friday, I met with the Mr. Baldan Ochir, head of the working group that is shepherding the strategy in Parliament. From our discussions, it seems that there is great willingness on part of Parliament to address many of the issues outlined in the document -- most of which are related to the sustainable development of the livestock sector. So, no hesitations there!
