Ulaanbaatar is an ideal site to launch an effort to support improved enforcement of wildlife trade regulations.

Some of the country's largest raw materials markets are located to the east and west of the city. Ulaanbaatar's many road inspection points, its train station, and its airport are all strategic sites for enforcing trade regulation.
