Unlike U.S. credit unions, Mongolia’s credit unions pay taxes. There are about 200 credit unions in the country and 120 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital. O told the league that he has “some thinking to do” after he met with the league about U.S. credit unions’ structure, regulation and services (Michigan Monitor May 26). Michigan League Executive Vice President Patrick La Pine also explained shared branching to O, who seemed interested in the concept, the league said. Mongolia is looking into merging some of its credit unions because they are spread out across the country, O told La Pine and league staff. Mongolia is about the size of Alaska.
