THE WEEK AHEAD

ULAN BATOR : Still In Transition

February 25, 1992

The Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party (MPRP), which ruled for decades under the Communist banner, holds a key congress beginning Wednesday at which it will discuss its own future amid an economic crisis that has seen Mongolia's gross national product drop by 10% in the last year.

While it still dominates the government, the MPRP began moving two years ago to accept multi-party politics and a market economy, and it now has coalition partners. The congress may further underline the party's move away from communism by dropping the word "Revolutionary" from its name.
