Mongolia's Tripartite Council, which brings together representatives of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection, employers, and trade unions, agreed to increase the minimum wage by 100,000 Mongolian tugriks (about 40 dollars) from the beginning of the next year, the ministry said in a statement.
